Downloads For WxFixBoot

WxFixBoot v3.0.1

This release includes several important bug fixes and adds support for Fedora 31.

A blog post is available at containing all the juicy details about this new release.

NOTE for Linux users:

GetDevInfo needs to be installed before you can install this - head over to or to download it first.

Please install the Python 3 version.

An alternate way to make this easier for Ubuntu users is to add my PPA to your system (see

You can also download WxFixBoot from

Notes for Fedora users:

* When modifying a GRUB-EFI Fedora system from a live disk, or another operating system, you need to have booted in EFI mode.
* After modifying the bootloader for Fedora from a live disk or another operating system, you may need to run "sudo ldconfig" in the terminal for networking to work following a reboot.

These are issues that I am working on, and I aim to fix them in the next release.


*** Deprecations: ***
- Installing LILO is not supported on Ubuntu 19.10.
- This is the last release that supports the LILO bootloader.
- This is the last release that supports the old YUM package manager on Fedora and derivatives. From the next release onwards, DNF will be required.

*** No longer supported ***
- The outdated elilo and grub-legacy bootloaders are no longer supported.
- Fedora releases before 31 are no longer supported due to changes in how the bootloader is managed.

UPDATE 29/1/2020: This package works partially with the current development version of Ubuntu 20.04. There is an issue involving LVM disks, but this requires further investigation to determine if this bug is in WxFixBoot.

The checksums on this page can be used to verify that your file downloaded successfully without corrupting in transit. These can be verified (usually on the command-line) using specific instructions for your operating system as detailed below:

Instructions for Linux (MD5 sums)
Instructions for Linux (SHA256 sums)
Instructions for Mac OS X (both)
Instructions for Windows (MD5 sums)
Instructions for Windows (SHA256 sums)

In each of these cases, you can compare the output of the command to the checksum for the file (in the table, next to each download file).

Digital Signatures

The digital signatures on this page can be used to verify that your file was created by me, and hasn't been tampered with, either on the web server, or during transit to your computer. Checking these is more difficult, so I have decided not to include instructions here because they'd have to be very long to do it justice. Instead, please carry out a search on how to verify GPG signatures if you wish to learn how to do it.

It's a very good idea to verify both the checksum and the signature, but it's not mandatory.
