Did you purge grub from the HDD?
I did that before, it purged like 8 or so. Could there still be a problem? So I think grub could possibly be on my Mav SSD. When I tried putting Linux on before. Would I have to boot into Linux to take grub off the Mav SSD, if it is on there?
Use the boot directory switch and choose root partition
with the OS X and Linx drives both connected, boot Linux and open a terminal. TypeOk, I try those cmds in terminal in Mint, but none of them worked. I was getting an Error of a sort, it read like this.
E: Unable to locate package /dev
This happened when I try to install grub, and I got this error (below) when I was purging grub.
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg return an error code
Edit: I also found that my Mav SSD had grub on it, still looking for a way to delete it off.
with the OS X and Linx drives both connected, boot Linux and open a terminal. Type
to verify your Linux drive info, then type
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge grub grub-pc grub-common
When the menu screen comes up, select yes to purge Grub2 from the system. Then reboot. If it won't boot, then you have removed Grub successfully. Shut down, disconnect the OS X drive, boot with a Linux live cd and open a terminal. Type
and verify the root partition of your Linux drive. Type
sudo apt-get install grub-common grub-pc
when the menu comes up, it will give you a selection of devices to install Grub2 on.
Select the drive/partition for your Linux install (say /dev/sda1 from your fdisk commmand was your Linux root partition you would select that) Then type
then, when the update is complete type
sudo shutdown -r now
I'm currently planning to install something like Maverick + Fedora (20) on a NUC.
Is there somewhere a guide for this kind of dual-boot, please ?
I already took a look at RehabMan blog, and this looks encouraging,
but it there something more close to my expectations ?
Thanks in advance for any help, Best, G.
