    I will try the 'Terminal' again.
    I don't have a boot repair disk. Is there a way to create one?
    Thanks again and I appologize for the rant.

    Just a thought: because I can only log on as 'guest' doing the Terminal, sudo update-grub may not be stored!
    I believe that in 'guest' nothing is saved. ???

    Why can you not log on as admin
    and you ask
    but I have sent full instructions on the post

    on which link you then go to this link
    https://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home/

    as I said before you are not annoying me but I cannot understand how you come to ask
    when I have provided all the details

    I hate to pester but...
    trying sudo update - grub

    Command line - [ [myname] ]@local host home]
    asks for password for [myname]
    I don't know this I don't ever recall creating a password other than the 'login' one when Fedora starts up!

    I suggest you make the boot repair disc
    If the GRUB can be repaired for the dual boot it is automatic and then you will not have to concern yourself with the terminal cmds

    Now for a dumb question. How do you make a boot repair disc?

    You have already asked that once and I redirected you to the link I sent when I originally posted the details
    FIRST post with link is post 10

    The you asked again on post 16
    and I reposted details on post 18
    Which in fact was my last post before I again suggested you make the boot repair disc

    That all said and most respectfully
    My congratulations for even attempting it at your grand age.

    Thanks guys for all the help. In the end I downloaded kubuntu (again) burnt .iso on a DVD and reinstalled it ok.
    I still wonder how this system can see the hard drives. I have a second one in the box but don't seem to see it.
    Something to do with 'mounting' them?
    Thanks again,
    Ken
