Nu reusesc a instala Grub

Asked by georgian2all on 2016-12-09

Buna ziua.
Rulez pe pc-ul personal ubuntu 16.04 de circa 2 luni (am facut upgrade de la 14.04 - fresh install).
Astazi dis de dimineata pc-ul refuza sa booteze sistemul de operare. Am incercat sa repar bootloaderul astfel incat sa booteze o versiune mai veche de kernel avand in vedere ca tocmai ii facusem update sistemul cu o seara inainte. Aceeasi manifestare. Sistemul nu booteaza.

Am trecut la un fresh install dupa ce am facut backup la toate cele necesare dar se pare ca installerul nu reuseste sa instaleze boot loaderul (Grub).

Va rog sa ma ajutati cu o idee de rezolvare a situatiei.

if you have a full back up of all YOUR personal data then

a simple, quick, safe new, fresh install summary:

- download ubuntu 16.04 version (64 or 32Bit) .iso file (aaprox.1.1GB); after dwld finished, check its MD5SUM
- create/burn to a DVD the downloaded .iso (attn. the .iso image file must be burned NOT copied) using a burning app. (see ubuntu how to burn/create install media); after burning op finished you've got a bootable ubuntu DVD.
- start PC, insert above DVD and follow prompts.

ATTention please -

- most important - at the Installation to HD options steps/screens

- IF THERE ARE OTHER OS already installed on HD PARTITIONS please choose 'Something else' option ; you'll be presented with ALL EXISTING DISKS AND PARTITIONS installed on the PC
- select a HD WHERE THERE IS say MIN 10GB FREE SPACE; IN THAT SPACE CREATE JUST 2 NEW PARTITIONS - a SWAP of say 2GB and A ROOT (/) PARTITION on the remainder 8GB. IMPORTANT NOTE: if there is a larger FREE SPACE of, say, 40-50GB install ubuntu 16.04 in that space (recommended)

another v important point - it is best practice to install grub on /dev/sda; make sure that /dev/sda disk is chosen at the screen where THE NEW INSTALL PARTITIONS are created.

from this point on the installation will complete automatically without any other input. I strongly recommend to get fully familiar with ubuntu fresh installation procedures BEFORE attempting a new install.

Following this post I will NOT duplicate the official ubuntu link above; it documents perfectly the entire FRESH install process AND should be used.

Can you help with this problem?
