Super Grub Disk
I desparately need help
I do NOT have vista and wouldn't have it if you paid me
I have windows XP (under sufference) as I have some drawing progs that only work in
windows IE: Coral and Serif.
I have three hdd's in my computer as follows
Grub lists as
N IDE SCSI GRUB HURD TYPE
1 hda sda (hd0) hd0 230gb
2 hdb sdb (hd1) hd1 111gb
3 hdc sdc (hd2) hd2 114gb
hda = "Samsung SP2514" IDE on secondary master = 250gb = ext2fs = empty
hdb = "Maxtor 6Y120MO" SCSI on bus 0 = 120gb = ntfs = windows XP
hdc = "Samsung SP1213" SCSI on bus 1 = 120gb = ext2fs = Ububtu Hardy
I have two dvd/cdr drives
one on IDE primary slave
other on IDE secondary slave
I had windows XP on the "Samsung SP2514" dual booting with Linux Ubuntu "Hardy Heron"
all working ok "Hardy" was fully upto date with all updates as of 17 November 2008
I decided to install windows onto my "Maxtor" drive and Hardy onto my other "Samsung"
drive, every thing worked ok. no problems.
I then decided to take Windows/Linux off of my "Samsung SP2314" as I wanted to install
"Mythbuntu" in place of windows/Linux (not done yet)
now I cannot boot into either OS's. Keep getting
error message "BOOTMGR" is missing
I have tried to boot using "Supergrub" disk to no avail
N IDE SCSI GRUB HURD TYPE SIZE OS
1 hdb1 sdb1 (hdb1,0) hd1s1 ext2fs 111GB Ubuntu 8.04.1 \n \l
These are the partitions SGD finds
N IDE SCSI GRUB HURD TYPE SIZE OS
1 hda1 sda1 (hd0,0) hd0s1 ext2fs 232gb ((empty) (Samsung SP2514))
2 hdb1 sdb1 (hd1,0) hd1s1 hpfs/ntfs 111gb windows (maxtor 6Y120MO)
1 hdc1 sdc1 (hd2,0) hd2s1 ext2fs 111gb Ubuntu (Samsung SP1213)
5 hdc5 sdc5 (hd2,4) hd2s5 swap 2gb
back (error 6 is OK)
error 6 mismatched or corrupt version of stage 1 / stage 2
(root) hd0,0 file type ext2fs partitiontype 0x83 chainloader +1
error 13 invalid or unsupported executable format
hd1,0 error 17 can't mount partition
hd2,0 map (hdo)(hd2) - (hd2)(hd0) chainloader +1 boot
grub loading stage 2..
Computer hangs at this point, with a flashing cursor and no computer activity, have
left it like this for 1 hour just in case but nothing, when I reboot I get the same error
"BOOTMGR" is missing
Have not got a clue how to resolve it
I know both os's are OK and don't want to lose them I only have a dial up connection and
download at the pedantic speed of 2.5 kbs and it has taken me days no weeks to get all the packages to upgrade Hardy
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
