A client bought a Crucial MX100 SSD (Solid State Drive) 512Gb to be installed in their laptop and wanted a dual boot system with Windows 7 Professional 64-BIT on a 100Mb and 150Gb Primary Partition and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-BIT on a Primary Partition EXT4 with a 4.5Gb Primary SWAP Area. On Reboot I received GRUB Error... NO Such Partition Exists Grub Rescue. I attempted Boot Repair Disc but that also failed. URL of Boot Repair Summary is... http://paste.ubuntu.com/8115882/
I reinstalled Ubuntu with various partition sizes and as Primary and Logical partitions with the same issue and even reinstalled Windows using the entire drive and installed Ubuntu alongside windows. Same issue occurred and no dual boot is possible.
fdisk -l output of 512Gb SSD is... Disk /dev/sdc1: 512.1 GB, 512110157824 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 62260 cylinders, total 1000215152 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Disk /dev/sdc1 doesn't contain a valid partition table fdisk -l output of my 120Gb Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installation SSD (my Desktop) is Disk /dev/sda2: 111.0 GB, 110956118016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 13489 cylinders, total 216711168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Disk /dev/sda2 doesn't contain a valid partition table
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated ;-)
