Debian install fron H3LL

Postby Ralf Richii » Sat Nov 16, 2013 2:10 am

Don't beat me up too bad...I was looking at Debian 7 to see if it was better than Ultimate Edition (I know it's not even close). It has taken over my Grub and I cant get rid of it. If I could get some help making it go away I promise never to do that again.

I have Ultimate Edition; Win7pro; Debian7 (grub2)

I have a Grub Rescue CD... am afraid to use it before I back EVERYTHING up. ( Have used Windows for a long time, Still new to "Linux")

Am not sure what information more to give...?

Hello Ralf Richii,
Please give your hardware specs in your signature.

Make sure which one is your debian and windows and other partitions that may have data on it by booting from a rescue disk.

See what the dump of this is:
Code: Select all
lsblk

The above command will show you the disks and all the partitions each disk has.

Code: Select all
blkid

The above command shows you the attribute of every single partition on your system irrespective whether its mounted or not eg: whether its a windows partition i.e. ntfs or some linux i.e. ext4.

By recognising which partition is where and on what disk you will know which partition you want to format or recover or install grub too.

If you want to format the debian install go ahead(backup any useful data). Install the grub on the same disk, the windows loader will get auto picked up by grub.

NOTE: Run the above commands from your rescue linux disk so that the partitions are correctly recognised by them accordingly.

No worries, Debian is way better OS than ubuntu but the problem is its mainly targeted for servers with multiple processors, NIC cards and RAID cards and with support out of the box.

And desktops, laptops, even tablets and embedded systems ... but the DebIan distro community is often deliberately obtuse, obfuscating what should be presented clearly and directy. They may see themselves as presenting a base from which developers may derive particular distros.

That's why I look at derivatives first.

Currently, for someone looking in that direction, I would suggest looking at SolydXK for organizational interests, and Sparky_Linux for personal systems. They're both fairly new and full of youthful energy.
