Thread: Updates keep destroying initrd and boot config

    Default Re: Updates keep destroying initrd and boot config

    Here you go. Interestingly, I no longer get the error message! Same thing when I run it in French, by the way.

    But yes, there may be a problem with my partition tables. I messed around with gparted a few times before I finally had my dual-boot setup correctly.

    Still, though, I don't see the link with mkinitrd...

    For comparability can you also post:

    Code:
    # parted /dev/sda print
    TIA

    Allright, here we go. Does this look strange?

    Can't say for sure.
    Our setup shares some common and some different features
    E.g Both our boot patitions are on /dev/sda3. However in my case the "Partition table entries are not in disk order"
    but yours are, etc.

    We'll need to wait for a mkinitrd guru diagnose/solve this, or ask from more info.

    There is one other user seeing this issue, if they respond with info we might be able to pinpoint what the cause is.
    Thanks for the prompt responses.
