I've just installed Ubuntu (my first time installing Linux) and I've got my first error. Let me describe my system a bit first. I have a:
EVGA 680i SLI motherboard
4 SATA drives (150GB Raptor with Windows Vista, 64GB SSDnow V with Ubuntu, and 2x1TB RAID-0 WD Caviars)
8GB DDR2 RAM (4x2gb OCZ)
That should be all the info you need right?
Ok, so I installed Ubuntu on the SSD drive (/dev/sdc), its brand new and first install. Everything went smoothly, I downloaded the Ubuntu 64-bit Jaunty (9.04) and burned it to disc, then stuck it in the drive and rebooted. Selected "Install Ubuntu" and followed the steps. When it was done it told me to reboot and remove the disc. I did that.
Now, when I turn on my computer, it says:
*"Grub loading stage 1.5
Grub loading, please wait.....
It doesn't give me an option to boot into windows, and I can't boot into Ubuntu. So I have two questions.
1) How do I solve this so that I can boot into Ubuntu? I'm able to use the live cd and boot in, that works. 2) How do I boot into Windows (/dev/sda)??
Please bear with me I'm new to linux. How can there be an error here, grub should have been installed properly!
Followed the instruction here, this didn't work for me, just letting you know what I've tried. In the process I found that the stage1 file points to (hd2,0).
UPDATE 2 - Solved:
Well thats just great... I used Super Grub to fix the boot record, and now everything works, but it (FOR SOME REASON) broke my RAID, so i lost everything on there! Good thing I have it backed up, but thats lame! On top of that, I still don't understand why Ubuntu didn't work from a clean install on a separate free disc!??? This doesn't make sense... ideas are welcome
