The process I used, Installed Ubuntu onto hp laptop with vista pre installed via ubuntu cd, works good, wanted to make vista longhorn default bootloader, saved menu.lst file from ubuntu into place to be accessed by vista, booted into vista and installed easy bcd. opened easy bcd and went to manage bootloader and reinstalled vista bootloader. added neogrub bootloader and hit configure. opened menu.lst file and copied entire contents into the configure area. I saved it and when I try to boot using the neogrub bootloader it brings up the options to boot into ubuntu but when it begins to boot into ubuntu it gives me the error 17 file not found. I'm just not sure if I should copy the entire contents of the file into the configure applet.
