SOLVED! This is awesome program. It indeed fixed my netbook. It solved this problem: error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found. Entering rescue mode... grub rescue> And even generate a report file to post online to paste.ubuntu.com, and/or offer send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org I struggled about two weeks of agony before I luckily found boot-repair-disk project. I tried about 20 other programs in order to fix it. Just the last one I encountered (boot-repair-disk) thankfully helped. I would even donate some money if I get a job and earn. Thanks again.
May work on some systems, but on my one it installed an old version of Grub2 and failed to boot on the first harddrive to Linux on the second harddrive. There's no help provided when the distro boots up. Very little or no explanation of settings. If the author can set a up a safer and easier to understand set of steps then I'd love to support this as restoring boot functionality on Linux is abysmal and should not have to require complex shell commands. Hope the author can improve this.
Worked flawlessly when nothing else I tried was helping, could not have been easier. It even spits out a report to a website so you can view it later if needed.
Thank you! It works extremely well. I had moved around some OS's and hard disks on my system, and this easily corrected my MBR for me. Thanks again! I was really going in circles and now it all works perfectly!
I was stuck and boot-repair gave me back the system. Very good. I t could be more verbose to educate peple using it, but of course this is perhaps out of the project.
