I got a PC with Intel 64 Bit Processor.
There I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS at
/dev/sdb1 and Arch Linux at
Both swap onto
I tried (with succes) to install Arch Linux onto a SD-Card (
/dev/sdc) for my raspberry pi. There I tried to install vim to the SD-Card using
pacstrap. This produced a few errors. Then I plugged off my SD-Card reader.
After rebooting my PC I saw a
GRUB_RESCUE> promt. And the Line:
error:no such device:5a28b060-333c-479a-b5ed-58a7b9d8ae77.
This is the UUID of my Ubuntu partition (
my first try
Then I used my amd64 boot repair disc and installed GRUB onto
/dev/sdb. Then I had to disable
/dev/sda in the Bios and Ubuntu is booting nicely.
Arch was'nt shown up at this moment.
Then I ran
sudo update-grub and rebooted. Then Arch Linux was shown up but if I selected
Arch on /dev/sda1 my satadisc or somthing like that produced a ugly sound and my PC rebooted.
The output was
:~$ sudo update-grub Grub-Konfigurationsdatei wird generiert … #generating grub.cfg Linux-Abbild gefunden: /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-35-generic #Linux-image found initrd-Abbild gefunden: /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-35-generic Linux-Abbild gefunden: /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-34-generic initrd-Abbild gefunden: /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-34-generic Linux-Abbild gefunden: /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-33-generic initrd-Abbild gefunden: /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-33-generic Linux-Abbild gefunden: /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-32-generic initrd-Abbild gefunden: /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-32-generic Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.elf Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin Arch auf /dev/sda1 gefunden #found Arch on /dev/sda1 erledigt #done
interesting is that GRUB says only 'found Arch on /dev/sda1'.
my second try
Then I tried to install GRUB onto
/dev/sda and activated
sda in the Bios.
Then my machine produced again this ugly sound and I had to start again with the boot repair disc
my fourth try
is this here. I checked the
/boot folder of Arch and of Ubuntu the differents are:
-Arch has got two
initramfs.img (one is fallback) images
-Ubuntu has got a few
initrd.img images(different versions)
-Ubuntu has got a few
System.map files(see above)
-Ubuntu has got a few config files(again for the different versions)
-Ubuntu has got a few 'abi' files(what's that?)
And the filesystem of my Arch-partition is not damaged.
By the way I don't want to reinstall Arch because my installation is at a point where it would be really a lot work to rebuild the system.
Could it be that my MBR of
/dev/sda are damaged?
Now I want to be able again to start both Operating Systems properly.
