Your post is confusing...if you're trying to install Linux, why did you then install Windows??? And the bootmgr absent message is from Windows, indicating something is wrong there...nothing Linux related.

So, either do a fresh install of Windows (which will fix the problem), or install Linux as a dual-boot option, and GRUB will get installed and also fix things. Since you don't tell us what version of Windows you have, or what version/distro of Linux you want to install, if you want dual-boot, or what kind of hardware, it's hard to give you anything but very generic, broad instructions.

Again, it's hard to follow what you're saying...please try to write clearly.

So you want to dual-boot your system with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04? Then yes, you DO have to install Windows first...and AGAIN, this has NOTHING to do with any 'drivers' or ANYTHING Linux related...your Windows installation isn't complete or is corrupted. So, again, re-install Windows, and get it up and running properly FIRST. And a good place to start with any question, is to do research on your own first; putting "how to dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu 14.04" into Google gives you LOTS:

How-to guides, steps, links, and videos.

Is this a UEFI machine?

kaoutarabdelalim 10-06-2014 01:08 PM

What does it mean UEFI ? Please :(

szboardstretcher 10-06-2014 01:11 PM

We want to help you! But you have to make a Little bit of effort here. Google 'UEFI' and read the definition. If your next question is 'How do I know if i have UEFI?' then Google that as well.

You don't have to be an expert in ANYTHING to do a basic Google search.

You're welcome, but writing clearly has more to do with organizing your thoughts, than language. For example, you were given links to help you, yet you don't acknowledge them. You don't tell us what you've tried already, or that you UNDERSTOOD what was told to you previously.

...and that post clearly shows you what we are talking about, as far as writing clearly. Posting a camera shot of a single BIOS screen (and STILL not saying anything about the previous posts/quesitons), is a great example.

What, exactly, are you trying to show us with that???

You have UEFI enabled. Usually this causes issues when trying to boot other OS's such as linux. Disable it and try again. Arch Linux has a WONDERFUL wiki explaining how to disable/modify UEFI to work with Linux.

If you do not want Windows for some reason, then install Ubuntu and let it use the whole drive. It will erase Windows - and that is a good thing...

Seriously? Again, you need to do some basic research of your own. Can you not look up what that means, if you don't know, rather than asking someone else to hand you a definition?

And go back to the very first reply you received, where you were GIVEN THE SOLUTION. AGAIN:
Re-install Windows
Once Windows is installed and working correctly, then follow the how-to guide you were given, in order to be able to dual-boot Ubuntu.
Simple. Have you done ANY of that yet?

You seem to have opened three different threads, all of which are similar.

i can t have the original instalation of windows , you were right it 's corrupted ;so i can do nothing .... :( ! i change UEFI to disable ; nothing changes ! i did so researches , & i found that have relation whith the MBR , because it s not a right OS ... so i can't boot with an USB .... !
