Super Grub2 Disk

Last Update: 2019-08-29 03:34 UTC


Super Grub2 Disk is a live CD that helps the user to boot into almost any operating system even if the system cannot boot into it by normal means. This allows a user to boot into an installed operating system if their GRUB installation has been overwritten, erased or otherwise corrupted. Super Grub2 Disk can detect installed operating systems and provide a boot menu which allows the user to boot into their desired operating system. Super Grub2 Disk is not an operating system itself, but a live boot loader which can be run from a CD or USB thumb drive.

Fantastic!
Just read about this a few days ago here on DistroWatch, and today had trouble starting my Linux Mint laptop that has all my personal data. I was getting the error:
"attempt to read or write outside of disk hd0".

Built super grub2 onto a flash drive, booted it, and was able to get to a prompt onto my laptop. Ran the following commands:

grub-mkdevicemap
grub-install /dev/sda
update-grub

My Mint laptop is now booting perfectly!

Perfect timing, and this has saved me a ton of time restoring my laptop back to functional.

I've used this utility many times when setting up multiboot laptops, since some distros and BSDs don't play nice when installing, especially on UEFI. This and rEFInd are the only two things I need these days to ensure I don't have to start from scratch if something goes wrong. Happy to see the new version out, downloading now!

I am so glad I came upon this utility. I have a test laptop and I am installing new distros all the time. I have used the Boot Repair disk in the past. But sometimes it didn't restore the boot loader even though it says the repair was successful. I tried Super Grub2 and it worked like a charm the first time.
