After restart my laptop I couldn't access the Ubuntu partition, simply I am directly adress to Windows without the possibility to choose between Ubuntu, Ubuntu Recovery Mode, Windows ....

From Windows I used DiskInternals Linux Reader and I can confirm that all my Ubuntu files are there. I attached pictures. picture1picture2 .

I red few links around such as this and this but they did not help me.

So the question is, Can I re-mount Ubuntu FROM Windows to be able to access it again?

I have Window 10 Home 64bit.

Many thanks.

    You want to boot into Ubuntu again or just access the data on the drive?

Reboot the system into rescue mode, from your installation disc.

And then install grub.

grub-install <device name of your ubuntu installation>

IMHO, the boot loader needs to be fixed. You can use the boot-repair tool.

Boot from the live USB/CD and connect to the internet. Then type the following commands in the terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
  • The Ubuntu version in the live USB/CD must match the one I have installed? If so, how can I find it from Windows using DiskInternals Linux Reader? :o Jul 31, 2017 at 15:31
