    Odd behaviour - won't boot Ubuntu under Windows Boot Manager (nst_linux.mbr)

    I've had a bit of trouble dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu in the past because easyBCD was crashing (see my previous thread), and found the best solution to this problem was to simply boot up in Gparted, delete the Ubuntu partition, create a brand new one, then reinstall Ubuntu onto that...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Hi guys. Um... remember me? :p I'd been having some driver-problems with Ubuntu and, to cut a long story, tried reinstalling Ubuntu to get around the problems. I formatted my ext3 partition and reinstalled Ubuntu back onto it. While I installed it correctly (put GRUB in /dev/sda2 - the same...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    VICTORY! (I hope...) I really hope I'm not speaking too soon, as I'm pretty sure that IT WORKS!! :D The theory about W7 sneakily installing stuff into my D: Drive (Dio) was correct. I unplugged all my hard drives except C: and Windows couldn't even boot. Sneaky Microsoft b*stards. While...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Terry, can you give me the link you're referring to? I'm unsure which one you mean. I'm wondering how to proceed. Could I use gparted to delete all the partitions on C: and then give the drive a good format? Of course, I'll need to know how to force W7 to install its system files on the W7...

    After the Format Hi Guys. Instead of going to bed, I deleted all the Linux partitions on C: and formatted the big NTFS partition. Reinstalled Windows 7, haven't touched Ubuntu, and the problems remain. :( When I boot up Windows 7: My second drive (Dio) has vanished from My Computer again...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    NeoGrub = Fail. :( (I even tried changing hd0,1 to /dev/sdb3 but still didn't work) It's half 1 in the morning here so I'm heading to bed. Have a think about whether it's worth formatting C: and then reinstalling the OS's in a particular order. Obviously if it's not worth it then I won't...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    How weird. I expected that scan to take all night and it just told me 'volume is clean' and then booted straight back into Windows. Perhaps I ought to use a third party prog to double-check that. :S I've got nothing important on this OS as I only installed it last night. If you thinking...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    *Sigh* No dice, I'm afraid. I suppose I'll have to hold tight for a couple of days; Ubuntu isn't essential to my job, it's just a bit of fun for my spare time. While I haven't tried installing it in the Beta 2.0, I believe I'm able to access the NeoGRUB tab, yes. But I don't know anything...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Aye, don't worry about the drive letters. That was me just organising the drives in the order they were meant to be. Here are some screenshots from Gparted. While you look through those I'm going to trawl through Windows Updates on the off-chance that there's something related to disk...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Did as you suggested. Used Gparted to expand all partitions which had free space on either side of them. Even increased the Windows partition by 1mb just to ensure there was no free space anywhere on the disk. I then had an error booting up and had to 'Repair' with the Windows disc, but since...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Many thanks for your response. When I installed Ubuntu, I was given the choice between primary and logical for each partition, and chose primary for the root partition. Would there be any disadvantage to me reinstalling Ubuntu and setting the root partition as logical? Would you advise making...

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Here are the screenshots, as requested. It's the drive "Dio" that is not showing up under My Computer. The breakdown of my C: Drive is as follows :- 93GB NTFS = Windows 7 44GB = Ubuntu Root 988MB = Ubuntu Swap 988MB = Ubuntu Home

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    Yep. Genuine Microsoft product, successfully activated and everything. Tried downloading it twice, and even made sure to click on 'run as administrator' the second time round. I still have UAC enabled, but otherwise I can think of nothing that would be interfering with it other than (somehow)...

    Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7 RC

    Thanks for your reply, Terry. I'm new to Linux and dual-booting, so would appreciate any advice you can give. Windows 7 and Ubuntu are both on the C: Drive. I made the root partition primary, and the home and swap partitions logical. It advised to make the swap partition twice the size of...

    Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7 RC

    Looking at the screenshots in the easyBCD guide to dual-booting with Ubuntu, it looks as if the user has installed GRUB to the swap partition rather than the root. Is this correct? I've installed mine to root... wondering if that was correct. :/

    EBDC 2.0b60 crashes on linux tab

    I'm having the exact same problem. Installed Windows 7 RC and Ubuntu (both x64 bit) and am trying to get Ubuntu to appear at the bootscreen. I've installed the latest easyBCD 2.0 Beta, but it crashes whenever I go to add a Linux entry and hit the drop-down menu. I did as you said and typed...
