Installed Linux Mint 14, GRUB Broken

Postby dpitch40 on Thu Nov 29, 2012 5:41 pm

I installed Linux Mint 14 on my laptop today. The whole installation process seemed to work fine, but now when I try to boot I get a black screen with the prompt

error; file not found.
Grub rescue>

Previously, my HDD had three main partitions: one for Windows 7, one shared one for data (both NTFS), and one ext4 partition for Ubuntu. I wiped the Ubuntu partition and installed Linux Mint on it. My BIOS was set to boot to this partition with GRUB so I could either let it continue to Linux or select to boot to Windows. So I'm guessing that some part or dependency of GRUB got erased when I formatted the ext4 partition, and GRUB now needs to be reconfigured with Linux Mint. I can still boot with the Live USB drive I used to install Linux Mint, so I should be able to use that to fix the problem. What do I do?

EDIT: I also appear to be able to access most of the files on my Linux Mint partition when booting from the USB stick.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Please download the Boot Info Script and run it from a Linux emergency system. Post the RESULTS.txt file that the script produces, either between code tags or as a link. That will provide debugging information that's vital for figuring out what's wrong.

Code: Select all
============================= Boot Info Summary: ===============================

 => Grub2 (v1.97-1.98) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector
    1 of the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and
    looks in partition 6 for (,msdos6)/boot/grub.


This indicates that GRUB 1.97 or 1.98 is installed in the MBR of the disk. This version of GRUB will execute. It appears to be intact and it looks for its support files in /dev/sda6's /boot/grub directory. By itself, this seems OK; but....

Code: Select all
sda6: __________________________________________________________________________

    File system:       ext4
    Boot sector type:  Grub2 (v1.99)
    Boot sector info:  Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the boot sector of sda6
                       and looks at sector 1258242408 of the same hard drive
                       for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks
                       in partition 72 for .
    Operating System:  Linux Mint 14 Nadia
    Boot files:        /boot/grub/grub.cfg /etc/fstab


Another version of GRUB (1.99) is installed in the boot sector of /dev/sda6. Since 1.99 > 1.98, my hunch is that your Ubuntu installation put GRUB 1.97 or 1.98 in the MBR; then when you installed Mint, it put its newer GRUB in /dev/sda6, leaving the MBR-resident GRUB code "orphaned" and unable to work correctly because it's relying on support files that no longer exist -- they've been replaced with newer incompatible support files.

The solution to this problem is to re-install GRUB in the MBR of /dev/sda. There are a number of ways to do this. The one that I find easiest to explain is:

  1. Download the Super GRUB2 Disk and burn it to a CD. (I think it'll also work on a USB flash drive, but I'm not positive of that.)
  2. Boot the Super GRUB2 Disk and play with its menu until you find an option that gets Mint to boot. (There are several options, and you may need to try several. IIRC, "Detect any GRUB2 configuration file" usually works for me.)
  3. Once in Mint, open a shell and type "sudo grub-install /dev/sda".
  4. Remove the Super GRUB2 Disk and reboot to test.

With any luck it should work at this point. If not, try again, but also do a "sudo update-grub" instead of "sudo grub-install /dev/sda". If that works, try Googling on "re-install GRUB" for alternative methods of doing the job.

I thought it was something like this. I will try Super GRUB2 as soon as possible; thanks. Out of curiosity, is there anything I could have done before installing Linux Mint to prevent this from happening?

Probably not before, but possibly during. There should be an option in the installation that enables you to specify where GRUB is installed -- in the MBR (/dev/sda) vs. in the Mint boot partition (/dev/sda6, in your case). Selecting the former rather than the latter would have avoided the problem. That said, I don't know offhand if Mint's installer actually presents such an option. Some distributions have attempted to make installers more "user-friendly" by eliminating such "confusing" options and instead relying on algorithms to try to figure out the best approach to take. Unfortunately, such algorithms invariably fail in some cases, leading to more problems for at least some users.

Anyway, your solution worked like a charm. Thank you very much.
