I had set my PC like this:
/boot - 250 MB ext3 / 100 GB ext4, Kubuntu
Now I needed to install Ubuntu so I made a new 8 GB partition as
/ and formatted the previous
/boot partition and set that same partition as new
/boot for this new installation.
The thing is that now my Kubuntu partition is like just a
/home partition and a few other system folders but without a
/boot and grub sees only the new Ubuntu installation.
Please help, all my work for 1.5 years is on Kubuntu and I have to get it back. I could go and copy my firefox profile(cause this is the most important that I have there) but I would really prefer to have my system back.
When I do
sudo update-grub it says this:
Generating grub.cfg ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-26-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-26-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-23-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-23-generic Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.bin Found Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (12.04) on /dev/sda6 done
My Kubuntu is on /dev/sda6
But when I restart it shows only this options:
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-26-generic Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-26-generic (recovery mode) Previous Linux versions(in here are 3.2.0-23 and 3.2.0-23 recovery mode) Memory test (memtest86+) Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)
And that's it, no Kubuntu or
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on /dev/sda6.
In a post someone said that grub.cfg has to be updated manually(to write the entry for Kubuntu in my case) but it didn't work, may be I did something wrong...
I added manually Kubuntu in grub.cfg, copied the Ubuntu menuentry and with the help of
sudo blkid found out the UUID and replaced the Ubuntu partition UUID with the Kubuntu partition UUID. Restarted, it was there, booted but now it shows that:
If I press
S it continues and boots up all good...
Anyone knows how to get rid of the notice? :)
