Super, saved me probably several hours of fiddling and possibly ruining something. One thing, though: When I issued the "purge" command for grub*-common, it did not uninstall. I was asked if I meant grub:i386 or something, I did not write it down. Only when I purged that, could I progress. Maybe there should be dealt with this case by the tool. Luckily, I had enough background to work around it. Apart from that bit: Great work, thanks!
This is a pc-life-saver project. Incredibly simple, useful and fast : everything was automatic, and safe. A grub problem solved in a few minutes.
Saved my bacon. Windows 7 froze. Had to reset and came up saying that their was no boot device. Tried another tool and it didn't work. Put this on a CD. Booted and it fixed it.
After trying a few different methods and programs (on 32bit and 64bit machines ) ... I found REPEATEDLY that boot-repair is the fastest, easiest way to fix grub problems. I have two dedicated USB sticks (one 32 bit and one 64bit) that I am not touching (formatting/re-using) that I have boot-repair on ... if any of my machines goof up with grub2 ... Boot-Repair fixes it FAST and easy. I'd recommend anyone trying Linux have this utility ...one of those "you may not realize you need this but WHEN you do, you'll be happy you have it" type of tools
A life saver... thank you for the awesome tool!
