Help! Dual Grub2 boot problems, from Argentina!

Postby pandalinux on Sat Mar 16, 2013 11:13 pm

Hello: I migrated to linux, in my Asus KJ52C Notebook, I3, 3GB Ram, 320 GB HDD. Partition: Sda1: 40 GB Linux Mint, Sda2: Swap, Sda3: 40 GB Linux Manjaro 0.8.3 Mate, Community Edition.(boot crashes, and I changed for Manjaro 0.8.4 XFCE), Sda4: NTFS 230 GB of Media data, for both linux distros.

1) I've installed first Mint and Manjaro, in second place. The Grub2 installer recongnized both distros, but only Mint could to start up. Then, 2) I've installed Manjaro 0.8.4 in Sda3...and now Mint can't boot, a window tells me, that the partition (corresponding with Sda1) is not mounted yet. But, is mounted, I think! Is a Grub Problem?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Start Mint from CD or USB flash drive. Start a terminal and enter these commands:
Code: Select all
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda

Reboot.

Thanks! I've "solved" the problem, cause encountered a comand line in Fstab, that refers to Manjaro Flag!. Introducing a #simbol, like comment, in editin mode, Mint starts! Strange thing, the message about failed mountig appears yet, but the booting process continues! I need too much study about Linux!
