[quote=Denise Purple]I think it’s fairly simple to do in the terminal in the latest Ubuntu (Which I get you’re using). You need to just remove it, and I think you have to remove its settings as well. I’m not sure about the exact package name, if it’s grub or grub-pc, but anyhow, the command should look something like this:
sudo apt-get remove grub-pc --purge
When it’s completely removed, you install it again:
sudo apt-get install grub-pc
If it goes as expected, you should be presented with a number of partition names along the process. The one named /dev/sda (No number), will probably be selected by default since it represents the whole drive (Which means that it will be installed to the Master Boot Record). If you just choose the drive you installed Linux to instead though, it should install to that.
Well, the reason you need to keep GRUB around is because Linux for some reason needs the boot manager to tell it information like what kernel to boot. So indeed, when you choose the “Linux” option upon boot, GRUB will load. You might think that this will just give you extra bloat, and go with only GRUB, but for me it works better since I can just leave Linux’s and GRUB’s odd boot features alone to do what they do best: Linux.
Basically you got it right, although you don’t need to reinstall Haiku if it is already installed. Just start up the LiveCD again and run bootman from the terminal. Oh and, in case you missed it in the installation process, make sure the Haiku partition is bootable. See this option here called “Write Boot Sector”? http://www.haiku-os.org/files/slideshow/Haiku_Slideshow/04_install-cd_select-target-partition.png
If you missed it, just open it up again, choose your partition, and click it.
I don’t have any article now, but I hope my explanation works just as well. :)[/quote]
Denise, you are awesome! Bootman was way easier to configure than GRUB. GRUB is a nightmare! But yeah, when Bootman starts up, it shows Haiku and Linux, and they both work.
I am literally blown away with Haiku. This is so fast! When I get better at coding in c++, I am totally going to help these guys. This is amazing. The boot time is unbelievable! It’s like “Booting Haiku – BAM! I’m done!”
Here’s my Haiku desktop:
And thank you Denise and Tonestone for your guy’s help!
Oh, yeah, how do I mark this as solved?
