So I don't know if it can help someone but I could find a way to make the installation worked ! To explain it briefly, you need to create your partition by using mdadm and gdisk. In my situation, both were not installed on my live USB key. One this is done, I create 2 newt gpt partition table on both disk (sda and sdb). Then I start to create partition on ...

So I just now was able to successfully make my laptop a dual boot. The way I got rid of the grub rescue prompt was actually by changing my boot mode from Legacy Mode to UEFI. I did this by booting into the bios menu when I turned on my computer by pressing f2 (for me). I then scrolled over to Boot and switched this under the Boot Mode option. This got ...

If grub boots then so should your usb stick. Is there a boot menu in your bios(try pressing F12, F1, ESC, DEL or some other key when you power on your pc); if there is, insert your usb and try finding it in the menu. If you cannot find it try setting bios to legacy mode. If that doesn't work try one of these commands in grub rescue. For Ubuntu 14.04.1: ...

First, I would not use MBR, because you have there 4 OS's and that will not go far. You need to have the /boot partition as primary and not extended. So you either throw out the Solaris installation, or the Linux one. Booting into FreeBSD (or PC-BSD... whatever, makes no difference) with GRUB2 is easy. You just define your "set root=..." and then you say ...

Thank you Anthon for your answer above, it greatly contributed to solving my problem. It seems the solution to my issue was two parts. The entry in /etc/default/grub, for me should read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="cryptdevice=/dev/sdb2:lvmpool root=/dev/mapper/lvmpool-root" To break down each entry: cryptdevice consists of the partition you applied ...

Your problem seems to be in the difference of :crypt as volume group for /dev/sdb2 and using lvmpool- as volumegroup name as parameter for root. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="root=/dev/mapper/lvmpool-root cryptdevice=/dev/sdb2:crypt ro" The example here: cryptdevice=/dev/partition:MyStorage root=/dev/mapper/MyStorage-rootvol has matching :MyStorage and ...

bootx64.efi doesn't get started first. Most of the time, it doesn't get started at all. The EFI firmware has its own "boot menu", analogous to the menu presented by GRUB but at an earlier stage in the boot process. Just as GRUB lets you choose which Linux kernel to run, the EFI boot menu lets you choose which EFI boot program to run — choices being things ...

You can use Win2Grub or other similar programs as listed here. They offer an easy user interface. You could also completly remove Grub and boot both systems from the Windows bootloader. In order to do so you need to use tools such as EasyBCD.

Copy this script as mount-root on your usb-device #!/bin/bash if [ "$(whoami &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] && [ "$(id -un &2>/dev/null)" != "root" ] ; then echo "You must be root to run this script!"; echo "use 'sudo !!'"; exit 1 fi if [ $# -ne 2 ]; then echo "calling this script with only two options with the device and mountpoint" ...
