Error 18 Grub loading please wait
« on: 2009/09/26, 18:06:40 pm »
Wow I knew super grub existed but I just created a disk inserted it into the unit in question that had just given me an error 18 after ubuntu install. It booted to windows and my question now is I guess its safe to insert gparted and delete ubuntu and figure something else out.
But salvation and not having to reload windows. You bet I will donate.

I understand that you tried to boot SGD after a failed ubuntu install (error 18).

It booted to windows and my question now is I guess its safe to insert gparted and delete ubuntu and figure something else out.

But salvation and not having to reload windows.

You can either try to reinstall Ubuntu (If you do not delete Windows partition it is ok) with a /boot partition (Check: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/w/index.php5?title=GrubError18 )

Or you can postpone Ubuntu installation and set up your computer so that it boots Windows automatically (Check: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/w/index.php5?title=UninstallGRUB ). After recovering your Windows boot you should be able to delete or reconvert your Linux partitions to NTFS, FAT32 or (winfs if it had been developed) ;).

You bet I will donate.
Thank you!  :D
