Booting ubuntu help

I installed ubuntu on my D drive (i have a 100gb C: almost completely full from windows, and a 120gb D: used just for media that I have about 80% backed up and plenty of space).

I made an entry with EasyBCD with the following:
Linux
Type: Grub
Name: Ubuntu
Drive: Drive 1, Partition 1 (Linux swap - 5 GB) (i'm pretty sure this is accurate as the linux partition on the D drive)


And when I select it at start up all it says is:
BootPart 2.6 Bootsector
Loading new partition
Bootsector from C.H.Hochstatter
Cannot load from hard disk
Insert Systemdisk and press any key

This does not sound right.

I looked at the settings of my entry on EasyBCD and it reads:
Entry #2

Name: Linux
BCD ID: {b5d810ae-3830-11dd-9513-0016d49290e4}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\nst_grub.mbr

How can I point EasyBCD in the right direction?

Thanks for your help.

Hi d4ktu,

I don't think that's right. You pointed EasyBCD to the Linux swap partition, and not the Linux partition itself.
