What does the BootInfo contain ?

Asked by YannUbuntu on 2013-01-16

The "Create a BootInfo" option of Boot-Repair is activated by default, it creates a Pastebin containing basic system data such as:
- the size of your disks
- how your disks are partitionned
- which operating system are on your disks
- the location of your boot files
- the content of some readable boot files
- the identifier (UUID) of the partitions
- the partitions mount points

It contains no file from the Personal/Private Folders, no IP, no internet supplier... It contains only system files that help people understand what your boot issue is.

Here are examples of BootInfo:

http://paste.ubuntu.com/1513637/

In case you want these data remain local, just disconnect internet, the BootInfo won't be uploaded and will appear in your text viewer.
