What do you use as bootmanager? Is it a BIOS or EFI? Grub1, grub2, ...?

What errors do you get?

EFI is switched off so it is the BIOS which controls the boot process. I only use Grub2.

And the error I get is, "Multiple active partitions" after which the only way out is to reboot the laptop (or press and hold the ON button).
