    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    I have an update. Some will laugh with me. Most will laugh at me. Glad to bring humor. I had a blue screen this morning and while it was rebooting I happened to be in the room looking at the BIOS info and I noticed it was missing SATA drive 4 (secondary slave) which is where Mint is...

    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    I should research the "interesting stuff" first and go from there. If I can figure that all out, I can probably get EasyBCD or EasyBCD/NeoGrub to work. For now, I need a stable Windows computer to add more pages to my company's website before diving back into this. Reclaimed wood flooring -...

    No, it's on one of three identical internal SATA drives - Velociraptors. When booted from the Live DVD, I can see the SATA internals and the SATA external, as well as the "drives" in the card reader. I cannot see the RAID arrays. When In Win 7 and using "ext2explore.exe" I see the ext4 Linux...

    It gets better. I have three internal SATA drives. (The Linux drive is Secondary Slave.) I have two external RAID arrays and I have one external SATA Western Digital MyBook. At one point in my trying to get this to work, I had a GRUB prompt and got it to catalog all the drives. My jaw dropped -...

    Ok, back at this. There looks like typo in the second line - kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic ro root=/dev/sda2 Nonetheless, I took out the "ro", replaced all instances of the version with 2.6.32-21 and still couldn't get it to boot. I know my my Linux install is on sdc because that's...

    Thanks again. It is visible in Disk Manager and of course has a drive # assigned to it, but Windows Explorer doesn't show it so it has no drive letter. I'll give this a try .... Jeff

    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    Thanks. I was trying to have Windoze be in control so that if I changed - or deleted - my Linux install, I wouldn't have any drama with booting into Win 7. This method seems like it puts a Linux program in control. Any thoughts on why the Win bootloader can't load Mint? Jeff

    Thanks. It will be Sun when I get back to this. I'll try this before trying the GRUB2 that comes with Mint. Thanks for your support! Jeff Addendum: I suppose I should ask if NeoGrub works with Grub2 .... ?

    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    Thanks. I did that the first time and it wouldn't boot to anything. But I'll try it again. Maybe I screwed something up. Jeff Addendum: Wiped and reinstalled Mint and accepted all defaults. Rebooted, saw no boot options and found myself at grub rescue. I restored the Win7...

    Drive. I have a drive dedicated to Mint. Typing "ls" at the grub prompt displays the contents of the Win 7 drive, not the Mint drive. Jeff

    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    The first time I installed Mint I clicked through and used the defaults that put the boot loader in the "sda"/drive 0 (the Win 7 installation). Upon reboot, I got nothing. So I re-imaged my Win 7 installation to fix it. I thought that it had something to do with me having used EasyBCD to move...

    Help on Dual boot Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04 Using Windows Bootloader

    All I told it was to put whatever boot files there are on the Linux drive and not on the Win 7 drive so that it did not overwrite the Windows (EasyBCD) boot manager.

    Ah, yes, my noob is showing. I do get the GRUB command line. I will try what VIVXIX has posted. Thanks, Jeff Addendum: Linux Mint 9 (GNOME) and Win 7 for me. Pardon my noob-ness, but just where do I run "terminal?" FWIW, I could boot into Linux from the Live DVD and access the installation...
