boot problem [SOLVED]

Postby allorder on Mon Jan 31, 2011 12:45 pm

I installed yesterday Lmde x64 (201012/201101)
Just before I had ubuntu and win7 in dual boot without any problem.
Lmde boot 1/4 of the time... the other time it's a blank screen.
Since I installed lmde, win7 and lmde doesn't keep the good time.
When lmde boot, there is no problem.
Windows 7 always boot at the first time.
My laptop is: HP Pavilion dv6-2164ca Entertainment Notebook PC
Any tips ?
Sorry for my english, my first language is french.

Hi!
Okay.
We need some more information; please search "findGrub" in my help, copy it into a Terminal and post the output.
The thread http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=65156&start=20 could be helpful, especially my post Jan. 30, 7:05 pm.

Hi!
GRUB"2" had been installed into the MBR of the hd, that's okay. (At the moment it seems that it is not necessary to repair Grub.)
Please post your grub.cfg
Code: Select all
cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg

When Lmde is able to boot I always got this two messages before everything load. Otherwise it's a blank screen. I dunno if it's important.... :roll:

Feb 2 11:57:28 lmde kernel: [ 0.236862] pci 0000:01:00.0: BAR 6: no parent found for of device [0xfffe0000-0xffffffff]
Feb 2 11:57:28 lmde kernel: [ 0.236910] pci 0000:09:00.0: BAR 6: no parent found for of device [0xffff0000-0xffffffff]

Hi!
Sorry, that I could not answer earlier, but we had a health problem in my family.
I can't say what the problem is - maybe a hardware problem (PCI).
I found the following sites (I know, Mint depends on Ubuntu, but LMDE depends on Debian):
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/413419
Maybe you should search in a Debian forum or Linuxquestions (they have a Mint subforum) or bump!

Hi seeley :)

Just wanted to thank you for helping me get LMDE properly installed...I am really loving it :wink:
PS: any updates i got through the update manager for the boot has been installed just fine, so it was only that one time a "boot-related" update would not install...so everything seems to be ok now....
