Please bottom post on this list.
To run the script via liveCD:
1. Download http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/
2. Extract the file boot_info_script060.zip - easiest it to use Nautilus
& then right click the file and select 'extract here'. That will extract
the zip and create an folder /boot_info_script060.
3. Open a terminal can cd to /boot_info_script060 then run the script.
Example (I put it into a folder called bootinto, but you can run from
$ cd /home/gg/tempdir/bootinfo/boot_info_script060
gg at gg:~/tempdir/bootinfo/boot_info_script060$ sudo bash boot_info_script.sh
boot_info_script version: 0.60 [17 May 2011]

Finished. The results are in the file "RESULTS.txt"
located in "/home/gg/tempdir/bootinfo/boot_info_script060/".
boot_info_script.sh CHANGELOG RESULTS.txt
So, now we want to post the RESULTS.txt file - but *not* here because
the file is too long for this list. So we paste to ubuntu's pastebin:
4. Open the RESULTS.txt in gedit:
$ gedit RESULTS.txt
Edit|Select All Edit|Copy
(or Ctrl+a and then Ctrl+c)
5. Open ubuntu pastebin from Firefox - http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and
paste the entire file there. Put your name/nym in the 'Poster' box &
then click the 'Paste!' button. You'll get a new page with the file.
Post the URL to that page here. Example:
Hi Peter again!!
Have uploaded file to paste bin at http://paste.ubuntu.com/677172/
However the following issue arose during execution:
"gawk" could not be found, using "busybox awk" instead.
This may lead to unreliable results.
It then went onto indentifying MBR's
Trust this helps
