I am curious as to which version of Microslush you have installed, and having FIXMBR and FIXBOOT solve the issue.
The system I encountered this issue on was a MS XP PRO box w/SP2 and all the latest hotfix's installed (including IE updates, natrualy, and hahah, of course almost impossible to avoid:) Anyway, like I stated before, if it's this combination of OS's (SUSE 9.x, and XP PRO SP2/later) I would love to see someone come forth having had FIXMBR and FIXBOOT solve the MBR corruption issue from a SUSE GRUB boot loader installation/un-installation/failed installation.
Uninstall Linux: Fix MBR from within Windows XP « Schivmeister the Great. (serious folks can skip the bullshite and start reading from “just fix it” below) As a gift to myself for putting up a blog (not using the word “having” for I fear this domain may cease to exist without your prior knowledge), I am unleashing the geek in me with this first post.
Actually, the only reason I would continue to actively maintain this online “journal” would be solely for magnificently geeky purposes (software, hardware, geekwear etc). Do not expect gay (in the correct form of the term) stuff like images of my sexy fierce face, body and all that is me with daily write-ups documenting my trips to the toilet, refrigerator and all that shebang. Without further delay like a second-hand DC-10 refuelling in Mumbai, let us depart.
Removing Old Kernels on Fedora, RHEL, or CentOS with Yum. I recently noticed that my /boot partition was at 95% full, so I investigated to see what was causing it.
Apparently, it was filling up with older versions of the linux kernel as a result of upgrades. Because my system has been very stable, I decided to keep only the current version of the kernel (duh) plus one previous version to fall back on. Following are the steps I used to remove the older kernels. It would be a very silly thing to try and remove the kernel you’re currently running, so show the current kernel with: # uname -r.
Removeing Grub & fedora core 7. Yeah, just about anyone who uses fedora as their first linux distro would be pretty discouraged. i think you should give linux another chance, this time use ubuntu, but even if you don't, here's how to remove fedora: first, if you were able to get fedora on cd, i am assuming that you can burn parted magic to cd, so do that, boot to it, and delete all the partitions. here's how to remove grub: 1. boot up to your fedora livecd 2. download mbrwizard for linux (i think it's www.mbr.bigr.net) to your desktop 3. unpack the file straight to the desktop so you now have 2 morw files on the desktop. 4. open up the terminal the next few steps may look hard, but they are fairly easy 5. type this: cd Desktop alright, now type: chmod a+x mbrwiz.
Grub help, deleting partition without deleting grub. FIXBOOT y FIXMBR [Archivo] GRUB Manual 1.99. 63082 : Questions. Clean Up Ubuntu Grub Boot Menu After Upgrades. One of the things in Ubuntu that has always driven me crazy is the addition of new items into the grub menu without removing the old entries that likely don’t even work anymore.
I’m sure most experienced Ubuntu users already know how to do this, but here’s the method anyway. Important: If you’re using a newer version of Ubuntu with grub 2 (like Ubuntu 9.10 or later), you’ll need to read about how to clean up the New boot menu instead. I just installed this box recently, and then did an upgrade…. already there are 7 items in the menu. To remove these entries, we’ll need to edit the file /boot/grub/menu.lst. You can do this by using Alt+F2 and then typing in the following command: gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst Now that we’ve got the file open, scroll down to the bottom of the file where it says “End Default Options”, and you’ll find all the menu entries for the various kernels in here.
Save the file, and then the next time you boot up you’ll see a much nicer set of options.
