Hello Nnyan, welcome to NST
Go to useful utilities page and click on the power console. Issue the following command and paste here:
No, don't do that. Ubuntu needs a swap partition, and reinstalling ubuntu will probably have no effect with this particular issue, since it is a bug in EasyBCD.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.
I might take your advice and delete my swap partition. Reckon it's worth a reinstall of Ubuntu while I'm at it?
What does your D: partition contain?Addendum:
Other stuff I thought I'd mention just in case it has some relevance... my D: drive has stopped showing up under Windows 7. Only Ubuntu can detect it at the moment. Very strange... but probably Windows' fault.
And my root partition for Ubuntu is a primary partition. Could the presence of two primary partitions be causing this crash?
Ok, so your root partition is primary? I noticed there were two "linux native" partitions in the bootpart output, one of which was primary, and the other logical, so I guess the logical partition is your /home partition? It looks like your swap partition is also logical.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?
Yes, expand your root and /home partitions with Gparted, so they take up that free space on your disk, and see if it resolves the issue.Would you advise making any other changes to my disks? I must admit I don't know too much about partitions, but always assumed 'primary' was needed for operating systems. Is it alright that my other, storage drives are also set to primary?
