Ubuntu – Where to install Burg

burgsoftware installation

I've seen a lot of guides to install Burg, but they all say do:

sudo burg-install /dev/sda

And replace sda with whatever drive my boot information is on. When I do sudo fdisk -l, I get:

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1            2048     3074047     1536000   27  Hidden NTFS WinRE
/dev/sda2   *     3074048   358905658   177915805+   7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3       604071936   625141759    10534912   17  Hidden HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4       358905854   604071935   122583041    5  Extended
/dev/sda5       358905856   595953663   118523904   83  Linux
/dev/sda6       595955712   604071935     4058112   82  Linux swap / Solaris

So where should I do burg-install at? Am I just supposed to do it at /dev/sda? I really don't want to mess anything up.

  • If you're using grub installed to /dev/sda, then burg should be there too. I'm inclined to stay out of this question as far as answers go since you could be trying to chainload grub from the windows boot.ini and install a boot loader on sda5 (although this requires forcing some things).

    By default grub will install to /dev/sda and that's where you would install burg.
