Windows 7: GRUB does not load

13 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Basic x64
GRUB does not load

I have Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 7 Home Basic in one machine. After I put my Windows 7 to hibernate and then when I press the power button, instead of loading the Boot options menu or GRUB screen it directly boots Windows 7. I've read in some forum that continuously pressing ESC after you press the power button would load the grub screen, but even it couldn't help me as the laptop started making a loud noise.
Please help me on how should I boot OS while hibernate W7 and again RESUME W7 after shutting down Ubuntu or at least tell me how to get the grub scree so that I can load Ubuntu.
The Grub screen after I Shut Down Windows 7 and power it On, and not when I hibernate Windows 7.

That behaviour is correct - when the PC sleeps/hibernates, it does so from the booted OS. The same would apply to a hibernating Linux distribution.

The only way to access the GRUB bootloader is through a cold boot/restart.

Hi I am looking at Grub4dos since my recent foray into all things bootloaders. I am gaining a little footing with what I can and can't do (practically!) Although it was definitely trickier than I thought (or I just don't have the same time like I used to... ) Anyhow, I am looking at Grub because...

So, I had a double boot of Ubuntu and Windows 7 on my VAIO laptop. Ubuntu had taken up too much space, so I removed it from its partition (stupid decision in hindsight; I don't need to hear about that). When I try to turn my laptop on, I get this message: error: no such partition grub rescue>...

I did say in an old post to keep an eye out for this ;) So, being the curious monkey I am, I installed the 6801 build on a separate partition. All was good. Very nice. Not surprisingly, my GRUB loader was wiped out. That's no big deal. I'll deal with that later. What IS surprising and...
