    Post Ubuntu 8.04 Installation: Grub Error no15


    Hello

    I have tried to install Hardy Heron on a separate partition inside the windows using the wbui installer provided with the CD (obtained through ShipIt- thank you). As I try to boot into Ubuntu I get an error message :

    GRUB Load Error No 15, File not found.

    I have also tried to do a clean install Ubuntu 8.04 in the same partition, but in that case I got "GRUB Error no. 17, unable to mount the disc".

    My system specs are as follows:

    There are three HDDs. Two SATAII, one of 160GB, four partitions including Windows- C: drive- all NTFS and the other 500GB (Four partitions - all NTFS) and the third one is IDE 80 GB. I installed (or tried to install that is) Hardy on the 80GB IDE HDD which have two partitions, both NTFS. I used the first partition in the 80GB HDD for Ubuntu 8.04 installation.

    It is very much necessary for me to install and run Ubuntu successfully, as I need to install Edubuntu ASAP. And from this release onwards Edubuntu needs Ubuntu 8.04 as base system.

    Please help me out.

    Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure that to use wubi, you shouldn't have to boot the CD, just insert it into the CD-ROM and let Windows perform its autorun setup. And if I'm reading the second part of the post correctly, are you trying to install Ubuntu to a NTFs filesystem? If so, I don't think that's going to go well for you. Try with either ReiserFS, XfS or even ext3.

    No no...I tried to install using wubi while I was inside XP.

    In the seond part I meant that I tried to install Ubuntu in the same partition but after choosing an option to format the partition to ext3 Journal filesystem in the Ubuntu installater's integrated partition manager.

    Hello,

    Here is a page about your problem. Note that this link is to a place far down in a large page about grub errors and the whole site is about installing linux in a dual boot situation with other operating systems.

    grub page

    Hello

    Please help me out. I tried again to do a fresh install and now I'm getting ERROR 22!!!!!

    Should I use a 7.10 Ubuntu to install the base system and then upgrade to 8.04? Or is there any easier solution?

    Did you do a Wubi install or a conventional install from the CD ?
    As you can see from the grub manual page here error 22 is no such partition.
    If you did a conventional install, boot from the CD, open a terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    and post the output here ... the l is a small L

    Ed: Did you follow the Wubi install from CD information on this page?

    Thank you for your reply.
    Ed: Did you follow the Wubi install from CD information on this page
    Nope, I just followed the onscreen direction...but got an error (most probably number 17) while trying to boot in Ubuntu using Windows Boot Loader. The installation though completed successfully.

    I shall post the output of fdisk -l in a while...

    Thanks again

    EDIT


    Here is the output of fdisk -l command:

    It seems that you have not read the whole thread before posting, my present problem is ERROR 22- kinda promoted! So could you share how exactly did you solve your problem?

    BTW, IMHO, start a new thread with your problem as your problem has no link with the original subject line of this theread.
