this project is excellent. live cd version of boot repair disk also contains OS uninstaller and Gparted.So live cd is 3 in one
Very pleased to have found this useful suite of tools for partitioning disks and repairing bootloader. I like the clear, uncluttered Lubuntu-style interface. Also includes text editor, file manager and access to internet. Perfect combination. Used successfully to restore Grub2 bootloader after Win7 install overwrote my Xubuntu. Definitely a keeper, this one...
Saved my @ss. I had playing with partitions too. I had a dual-booted XP - LM-16-mate, two drives, split the sda to install LM-16- xfce there so to have a triple boot. Alas, no boot from any of the three installs. "boot-repair" to the rescue. The hardest part was the download and the burn. And, boot-repair "just worked." The highest complement I can give it. A+, Top Shelf ratings :)
This package saved my bacon. I was messing with partitions on an XP / Ubuntu dual booter and ended up at the dreaded grub rescue prompt. The automatic repair option worked perfectly. In fact I broke it again a second way and got to re-use this package. Fixed it right up again. Thanks!!
As of the 20130508 version it works. I had a UEFI system with Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04 running mdraid. It pulled in some libs from 13.04(?) for some reason (it gave a warning). The LIveCD is based on Ubuntu/Debian so it can be netbooted over PXE/NFS. It would be helpful if the utility could run some of the commands itself instead of relying on the user doing it manually in a terminal with sudo. Annoyingly it only has the default Xterm/Uxterm terminal which don't support pasting from the clipboard.
