Ubuntu error 22

I have two hard drives on my pc, one with ubuntu 7.10, the second with 8.04. I want to get rid of the 8.04, so I deleted all of it's partitions.

Now when I boot the machine, I get "Error 22" in Grub.

used Super Grub to boot into 7.10, and I want to edit Grub so that 8.04 is out of my machine completely and the pc will boot straight to the 7.10.

Thanks.

While in Ubuntu do:

sudo fdisk -l to find the drive you want to boot to.

On the command line type:
"sudo grub", this will give you the grub shell >

If the disk you want to install the MBR is sda* for instance, then type (at the grub prompt):
"setup (hd0)"

then type "quit" at the prompt.

You have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

it is very hard for me to help someone that wants to get rid of LINUX :( ...but I'm a proffessional and I'm letting my feelings aside ha!

Firs is your MBR was created with UBUNTU or Windows (in other words when you boot is it a windows menu or a LINUX menu) that lets you choose the boot options? if it's LINUX you have to use a LINUX base partition editor to edit the MBR (the way the system will boot), if it's a Windows MBR then you normally ave to delete the LINUX partiton... (if Windows can not delete it you can use a LINUX base disk partitioner) be extra prudent using disk partition editors, if you do not understand what you do you can LOSE data...

Good luck!

You have to format your HD fully not only the C drive and if you are taking backup of your data just check whether it contains any infected file or files. because i think the virus you are facing cant be deleted by kaspersky. So try to get rid of all your data if possible.

you can also do one more thing if you are a techie then you can download Ubuntu ( linux OS)
make a bootable cd and boot using that disk without installing and you can manually delete the virus files by finding them manually one by one. dont delete any system file.

I have installed dual os(XP and Ubuntu Linux 10) on same drive It is working but my pc became very slow. Now I want to uninstall any or both os but it is showing error. So suggest me How can I?


Hi, try the following sequence.Insert your XP disk and reboot, during bootup press your ESC button or Del on some PCs, you will be in BIOS, from here you can change you primary boot drive, select CD rom, save changes and reboot. Press return when request to boot from CD appears, wait for the sequence to finish installing, select the section of the drive you wish to change, select delete, confirm and then reformat your hard drive. PC will reboot afterwards and start installing XP. Be aware this will remove everything from your hard drive, so back up first. Hope this helps

You have to delete the ubuntu partition completely and recreate a new partition for the vista install. You can do this during the vista setup.

Ubuntu 8.10 install


Just insert the CD in your hard drive and wait for the splash screen, but if it does not appear, open up explorer and go to your CD drive folder and find autorun. Doubleclick on that so the splash screen appears. It has the choices and options for installation. Another way is to go to your BIOS and make your PC boot to your CD drive, then insert CD in drive and restart. It will come up with the Ubuntu live installation.

If you don't have windows on the computer, you can try the Ubuntu alternate install disk or reinstalling if you haven't tried that already. Do either of you have more then one hard drive? If so, which drive did you install Ubuntu on?

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.
