Elyssa is only thing that will boot after install

Postby dw5437 on Tue May 27, 2008 2:32 pm

My hard drive has Daryna-Elyssa-And Ubuntu 7.04. 250 gb drive. Just installed Elyssa on sda3. Now I show all of the boot options on the boot splash screen but no matter which system I try to boot into only Elyssa will boot. I need my Daryna back cause it has all of my files on it. Here is my menu.list

title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic

title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic

title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro quiet splash

Are you getting grub errors to help diagnose what is happening? You can restore Daryna's grub to the MBR from Elyssa like so:

Open a terminal and run these commands one at a time:

Code: Select all
sudo grub

Code: Select all
root (hd0,2)

Code: Select all
setup (hd0)


This will reinstall Daryna's grub back to the master boot record. Then you can copy and paste Elyssa's grub info into Daryna's. You may be able to boot Elyssa from Daryna that way.

God bless you 67GTA. Worked like a champ. I will write down these commands this time in case I ever need them again. Many thanks!!!

If you add this to your Daryna /boot/grub/menu.lst file, it should theoretically let you boot into Elyssa:

title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic

title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic
