    Can't boot into Ubuntu

    "Back in Vista you have to delete the old Linux entry and re-create it." Did this and still get to hung black screen "Cannot load from harddisk." "Try it for both the original drive number and this one." I'm confused by this comment - what do you mean by "original drive number" and what is...

    Can't boot into Ubuntu

    Guru - I'm going nowhere fast! Can you please give me the commands, in order, after I boot from the Live CD? I've tried to follow your last set of instructions and can't. Also, pls note attached file - does error mean anything?

    Can't boot into Ubuntu

    Thanks. At a Linux terminal, the find cmd returned (hd1,1) and I used the root and setup (twice) commands as instructed. In EasyBCD, I added an entry, Ubuntu 7.04, but note that my Linux native partition was shown as Drive 2, partition 1. I selected this anyway and Ubuntu 7.04 came up as a...
