Re: Loss of Dual-Boot Again [Solved]

Interestingly, /proc/partitions shows entries for sda, sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4, sda5, sda6 and sda7, so the operating system has a means of detecting all partitions, whether or not they are mounted, because sda1 and sda2 are not mounted.

Re: Loss of Dual-Boot Again

Yes, I understand that mounting the Windows partition avoids the issue. My point is that the Windows partition did not always need to be mounted before. I have had dual-bootable systems for multiple years running Sabayon. Perhaps "fdisk" or similar was used in past scripts to detect other bootable p...

Hello, Sabayon Gurus. I have a desktop and laptop that were originally set up as dual-boot systems between Windows and Sabayon. I have not used the Windows side in some time (multiple months).
