    Help with triple booting-3 separate hard drives - Windows-Mint16-Ubunt


    I have been trying to fix this issue: looking online, forums everywhere to not much avail.. on being able to get 1 "grub" menu to list all 3 separate HDD's in order to be able to boot into whichever of the 3 OS's I choose through 1 GRub menu.

    I have got Windows 7-64bit on my "main" 1'st internal drive, then, Ubuntu 12.04 on my second Internal hard drive.. and finally Mint 16 on my 3'rd USB (WDMYBOOk) external hard drive.

    I am certainly able to boot into any of them but when I turn on my laptop, It only allows me to choose from 2 of the drives to boot from, (usually Windows 7 or Ubuntu) and then normally I have to go and press "f9" from statup options" when i initially turn on the laptop, before the Grub menu etc. in order to select to boot from my WDMYBOOK external Drive. Which is not terribly annoying, but it is a bit..

    And also, sometimes if say, I update "Grub" in either mint or ubuntu, it seems to overwrite one or the other and Then all of a sudden the GRub Menu, upon booting up the OS, will have just Windows7 or Mint16 instead of Ubuntu and I can not even go to the "F9" option to boot ubuntu ...

    Also I have used EasyBCD to try and fix this issue, & all seems fine until I actually reboot and even still, the menu only will show me Windows7 & Ubuntu..OR Windows7 & Mint, depending on the day it seems lol....

    I would definitely appreciate if anyone has successful info or a how to in order to be able to "Triple Boot" from 3 separate hard drives, with all 3 being listed in 1 Grub menu... as opposed to always having to turn on laptop, press F9 to go to Boot Options in order to just boot into mint16, ( There have been a few times, after setting EasyBCd for all 3 drives, that All 3 will be listed there, but when i click on Mint16 it does not load, or sometimes Ubuntu" . On each Hard drive, I have it set to each drive with their own bootloader in order to not overwrite windows with linux boot loader too, in case that helps.

    Hopefully I have written my issue with enough detail. I basically would like to be able to just turn on my laptop and have 1 Grub Menu there with Windows7, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint16 all on the list, and whichever one I click, to load up.. without having to go through different menus and the like.~

    I've read a number of posts similar to this. EasyBCD seems unable to boot two Linux system for some reason. Not sure this is actually the case but, I have seen a number of reports to that effect.

    If you want to keep the windows bootloader on the first drive and it shows windows and either Ubuntu, running sudo update-grub with the Mint drive attached should get you a menu with all three systems although all you would need would be Ubuntu and Mint.

    nd also, sometimes if say, I update "Grub" in either mint or ubuntu, it seems to overwrite one or the other and Then all of a sudden the GRub Menu, upon booting up the OS, will have just Windows7 or Mint16 instead of Ubuntu
    That doesn't make any sense. Updating the Ubuntu grub will add systems to the Ubuntu menu if there are any. Updating Grub in Mint will do the same for its boot file. Probably the best thing to do is google "bootinfoscript", this should take you to a site which has software to download (you must use a Linux system) and run to get more detailed information. Read the instructions in the link in the Description box, download and run it and then post the output, a results.txt file.

    I appreciate your input:

    ok, thanks for your advice, I did the boot info script and the results are posted below.. :

    Before running the bootinfoscript- I actually had uninstalled Ubuntu, from 2nds hard drive, unplugged the 3rd external drive and then reinstalled Ubuntu to the 2nds drive, and not sure if that will make a difference
    If I manage to get all 3 drives/operating systems to list to the Grub Menu and also work when each is clicked on with no issues, I will post "solved" & let you know.... But here is the Boot Info Summary as My computer is now:



    ============================= Boot Info Summary: ===============================

    => No known boot loader is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda.
    => Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb and looks at sector 1 of
    the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks
    for (,msdos1)/grub on this drive.
    => Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdc and looks at sector 1 of
    the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks

    =>No known boot loader is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda.
    is this "no known bootloader on /dev/sda" thing an issue I should be concerned about, also? That is Windows drive, and it boots up fine, to me.... J/W!

    Yes. I don't know how you would be able to boot windows if its drive (sda) is set to first boot priority with no windows code in the mbr. Should not boot by the logic of bootloaders. I only used EasyBCD once a few years ago so am not really familiar with it. When you initially boot, do you see one of the Grub menus or is it the EasyBCD menu?

    The Grub files and all the info for Ubuntu on its drive and Mint on its drive look correct. In Ubuntu, there are correct entries for it, for windows 7 and Mint. On the Mint drive, there are correct entries for it, for windows 7 and Ubuntu. So sdb with Ubuntu to first boot priority should allow you to scroll down the menu and select any of the three options. Selecting sdc with Mint should allow you to boot any of the three systems.

    There is nothing wrong with any of the Grub files or configuration. In your original post, you indicate you want a Grub menu with all three listed to boot any of them. As I stated, all the entries in both Grub files are there and are correct so if you set either sdb or sdc to first boot priority you should have all three options. A problem with that is that if windows is not on the first hard drive in terms of boot priority, it may be a problem booting as the windows entries may need to be mapped. If you have the windows drive set to first boot priority, then when you boot you are not seeing the Grub menu but the EasyBCD menu which then chainloads to either Ubuntu or Mint Grub. So this isn't really a Grub problem.

    A simple solution to this which is also what you said you DO NOT WANT, would be to install the Grub from either Ubuntu or Mint to the mbr of sda, the windows drive. This would obviously overwrite your windows code. Actually though, according to the bootinfoscript, there is no code there?? Do you have a windows 7 installation/recovery CD if you need?

    Given that you want to keep all three drives separate, the simplest thing to do would be to select the drive to boot with the F8 or whichever key your system uses.

    If you want to continue to pursue this, which drive is set to first boot priority normally? What does the EasyBCD menu file contain?

    I tried a triple boot with Ubuntu/GNOME, Xubuntu and Kubuntu once just for grins but came to the conclusion that all I really needed was ONE good Op System that I could use. I understand the "cool" factor of having more then one OS on your system but really, if you need more then one OS then are those OS's really getting the job done for you?
    I think you need to do a bit of Distro Hopping and find one really great OS that'll work for you then stick with it and learn it inside and out. In the end I think you'll be much happier then trying to juggle 3 Op Systems all at the same time. As always JMHO, YMMV.
    No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.

    Ubuntu. Xubuntu and Kubuntu are very similar, mostly different Desktop environment and you can change that within any of them. I think one reason for doing it is if you are new or just want to try something that is different, for example an Ubuntu and Slackware or Gentoo. Installing them on a hard drive partition will give you a better idea of how they will work. Personally, I think if someone wants to try different systems, it would be easier to use a main system with VirtualBox and test that way.

    The link below is interesting. For those of us who have tried triple booting or a dozen systems, the link below explains booting 140 systems on one computer. It's just done as a proof of concept and no practical reason, just because he could do it.

    Yea, I get the EasyBCD menu first when boot up, then only if I do not choose Windows from that EASYBCD menu, it will take me to the grub 2 menu. But if I click Windows 7 from the 1st menu (EasyBCD) it will bring me straight to windows, without going through the grub 2 menu.

    If you want to continue to pursue this, which drive is set to first boot priority normally? What does the EasyBCD menu file contain?
    In my BIOS, the first boot Priority is set to "NoteBook PC" which,... I guess is windows, since that has always been that way before I started using linux on this machine. And The EAsyBCD menu also has WIndows first (checked off) as default drive.

    Now, hopefully I can explain this well....
    My issue has been resolved in a sort of way except for 1 thing now... The Windows drive in bootinfoscript says what I posted above in previous comment, about having "no" loader there... But, My initial problem which I decided to get help from you guys for, with the GRub2 only listing 2 operating systems and sometimes all 3 but, would only ever let me actually boot into either Windows or Ubuntu, depending on the situation it seemed, Is actually Fine now for some reason. What I did was wipe the 2nd internal drive with Ubuntu on it & also wiped the 3rd external drive with Mint on it and unplugged all drives, Installed Ubuntu to the 2nd Drive, unplugged it & installed Mint to the 3rd external drive, plugged them all back in, in order to have the boots separate.. which seems to have worked since now I get EAsyBCD Menu upon 1st startup, then I click either WIn7, Ubuntu, or Mint and I am directed to either GRub 2 for Mint & Ubuntu or directly into Win 7 if I click Win 7 @ EasyBCD Menu... So all with that seems to work well. I appreciate you guys' help here very much.

    I just like Windows, then I really like Mint16,,, but I recently decided to try Ubuntu, which I had "Tried" with Virtualbox, but I felt like VB was making my laptop fan mad loud a lot, and I just feel better with them all on separate drives, VBox, just isn't my thing.... I like both mint and Ubuntu, and will be climbing the ladder to more "difficult" distros in the future. Though I see your point of "juggling 3 OS's... lol... I just feel better with them all on seperate drives, as long as any issues like this one I had here, are able to be resolved in a timely manner. & luckily that has been the case so far!

    To each his own I guess. Personally, I can't stand Windows of any flavor. Got my fill of it with Win98 and moved to an iMac. After that died 11 years later I gave a Win8 laptop a try and couldn't stand it so I took it back to Wally World for a full refund and used the cash to buy two used laptops. Installed Linux on em' and I've not looked back.
    After playing the "Dual Boot" game for a while I settled on a single Distro that does what I want so I can devote my time and efforts to it rather then having to split my time between two different OS's. Figure it's better to have a single Distro that I know inside and out then to try and play with two or three that I only half know. Anyway, JMHO, YMMV.
    No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.
