I am new to linux so I used to use both Windows Xp and Ubuntu.But due to problem in Windows,I re-installed Windows,but While re-starting the system, OS choice menu lost from Boot, Windows automatically opens, and ubuntu lost..,How can I find it..?
First thing happened to me is while I type mode(sudo su) OR mode (sudo su) [including and excluding space between mode and braces] ,It came same output: ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mode(sudo su)
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `sudo'
And second Problem is to give directory of the logical drive.In places menu it shows five drives(MUSIC,EMPTY,14.1GB Media( Lost Ubuntu),15.7GB Media(Win Xp),New Volume).You gave directory like /dev/sda5 /media/ I can't understand.What can i do.
Using the live CD boot Ubuntu and go to desktop. Then open terminal(from accessories) and type following:
// Spaces are crucial be careful about them where they are and where they are not.
find /boot/grub/stage1 ( u'll get something like "(hd0, 11)" )
root (hd0,11) here the number 11 should be different for you
I also have same problem but the smallest difference is that I'm using vista home basic along with ubuntu.
Now when i tried the above commands "find /boot/grub/stage1" gave an error saying "File not found" ,what can i do next.
