Well, I wanted to release version an special secret version of Super Grub2 Disk and in the meanwhile I did find some innecesary floppy seeks when using it in an actual machine and I did want to fix that. Fix is not complete but it improves SG2D usage. I also fixed that /boot-isos and /boot/boot-isos error (where only the first directory was searched) for those of you that try to use SG2D for booting loop-boot capable distributions. I’m not providing GZ or ZIP files because I think I will release another SG2D beta soon. I’ve become quite addicted to develop SG2D. I don’t like SG2D myself because I see that the future is Rescatux but… when you get into developing it… knowing the Grub2 scripting stuff and its insights it’s fun and addictive!

More than this I want to release an stable version of SG2D soon because it’s too long with the beta versions hanging around. And, of course, the special secret version needs an stable SG2D version so that I don’t have to release it twice.

  1. HelloHello, I’ve been trying to fix damaged computer by migrating to other system. However it looks like I propably can’t install any other system on computer with preinstalled Windows 7 Starter
    This is a netbook from Gateway LT21. Since long I was being prompted on every start up to activate it online but I never did and each time I was able to use it normally without any bugs even though Microsoft says I’m not permitted to use it without activation and one day when I decided to give time to this computer and take a risk of unstalling some other system on it, I tried to install Windows XP and after all drivers got loaded corectly the blue screen with White letters appeared saying that there was a problem because of some recently installed hardware or viruses, later I tried installing Windows 7, Vista and from time to time all installations were interrupted by loud emergency sound exact like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2OFUsEBLHU and the only way to stop that sound was powering off the computer. Then I decided to give up Windows and try Linux instead and I found out it’s possible to recover computer partitions and clean from viruses with Hiren LiveCD by running Windows XP mini so I made a bootable USB from iso image and it loaded but for some reason my enter button stopped working and now I cannot even make any changes in BIOS and what’s more, I was prompted to type some password I entered the one which I set last and it turned out to be wrong but Debian Linux Ubuntu could load despite if this but I had to push enter 5 times instead of 1 but I guess this option also stopped working. I set to clear the drive of 250 gb and created many different partitions with it but the installation seemed to be successful but the password which I created for this account did not match the one which I had to type after logging out from Debian to log again. So I decided to try installing something else again (two times Windows succeeded to install but I couldn’t even download Eset online scanner to clean my computer from viruses the screen was blinking and getting stuck and I couldn’t even controll the mouse, this started happenning when I connected computer to the internet with cable to download driver for wireless internet. My husband, who is the owner of this computer told me to throw it but I said I will fix it and I will not give up but seems like I only damaged it more). I tried to remove the cmos battery but looks like even this has some kind of lock so I cannot remove the cover of it like it was shown in the tutorial on one of the videos on Youtube and I also came across one webpage saying that all I need to recover the password is to give the code and model name and I’ll be given the password which I need to type if I pay 10$ online (the message is looking like this: “Enter Unlock Password (Key: 68913660)?” or that I can download password reset CD if I pay 9 Euros. Is this a joke or something? Has anyone had this kind of problem on this type of laptop/netbook? Please share your experience, tips and advices and honestly is there any way how I can save this computer from being thrown to the trashcan or pond? Thank you for your patience.
    I’ve just found video representing the exact behaviour of this computer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6X8pBg6BfQ . It was like this quite long time, however now it just stuck on the screen:
    ” Harddisk Security Sata Port 0 ST9250315AS Lock ”
    Nothing else. The only reaction to any pressed key is something like blinking.
    So I’m going to try supergrubdisk, however I wish there was an option to use other keyboard key because my Enter button is not working, I’ve been searching information on the internet about this case and I found out that in computers that have two Enter buttons, both of them not working.
