Error booting Ubuntu 11.04 [Grub 2] with EasyBCD


New Member
Good afternoon,
I seem to have a problem booting Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit with Windows 7 64-bit.
I followed your tutorial and installed it after Windows (, after that I had Grub 2 as default boot manager, after that I used EasyBCD to re-write MBR with Windows 7 Boot Manager and add Grub 2 to it as a second entry. Everything is done as it should be, I made no mistakes, 100% sure. I've already done the same a month ago with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit and it was okay and working. Now I have the problem that whenever I choose Ubuntu (Grub 2) from the boot menu I get: Try (hd0,0): NTFS5: No ang1 and basically that's all, from that point on I can only shut down my laptop pressing the power button.
What should I do to fix this?


I forgot to add something in the first post.
First, this is the configuration of my Windows Boot Manager:
There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 10 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Entry #2
Name: Ubuntu
BCD ID: {babf4a08-61a6-11e0-bfa5-af188632467c}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\AutoNeoGrub1.mbr
Second, last time when I was on Ubuntu I installed NTFS Configuration Tool and I messed up something and deleted the app. After that I can remember that when I tried to un-mount windows partitions from Ubuntu (partitions were displayed on desktop) I couldn't, it was saying that I must be root. It probably has nothing to do with this but...

Here is also more detailed configuration:

Third edit:
I just added a letter to my System reserved partition that was created while I was installing Windows 7 a week ago, after I formatted the whole hard drive. It's not working, should I change something in the EasyBCD configuration now?
