Linux Mint 17 Unlimited Partition Gets Error

Postby rbay » Tue Jun 03, 2014 9:06 am

I successfully install Linux Mint 17 on a partition
I followed your proper install guide: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=281
Yes I have tick "Limit Primaries" prior to install.
Everything's fine. BootIT BM is working after the install. I'm able to boot into Linux Mint 17.

But when I allow more than 4 primary partitions upon boot I get the following error:
Error: Unknown filesystem
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>

And then when I "Limit Primaries" again I'm able to boot once again. :shock:

I had Mint 15 working fine with unlimited partitions before. WHY? Really wants to know whats going on.
I really want to have unlimited multiple OS side by side with Linux Mint 17.

Help help please :x

When you switch to unlimited partitions and have that problem, check your Linux Mint boot item in Boot Edit to make sure that the Mint partitions shown in the MBR Details section are in the same order and locations as they are when it boots OK (they should be the same as when it was installed).

It works!

I went into Boot Edit and sort the edit menu items in order.
Then in Partition Work I click the View MBR for the partition...
moved up and down, delete insert whatever the items necessary to match the Boot Edit items' order
Check "Limit Primaries" in Settings and it's able to boot
Restart and enable more than 4 partitions (uncheck "Limit Primaries") and it boots without problem

Thanks Terabyte. Your product is great.
