Hello,

As I found on a forum, I took the lines of the menu.lst list from my ubuntu HDD:

default 0 .
timeout 10

title Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=b9165d7e-2d1a-4265-9761-57fa10ad4190 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

title Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=b9165d7e-2d1a-4265-9761-57fa10ad4190 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic

title Ubuntu 7.10, memtest86+
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/memtest86+.bin
quiet


So when I start up my computer and try to activate neogrubloader, I get the following message: NST/Stage 1 is either missing or broken.
What can I do to resolve this problem.
Any help would be appreciated

Addendum:

I just found something, could this be the problem:

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader TimeOut: 15 seconds.
Default OS: Microsoft Windows Vista
Entry #1
Name: Microsoft Windows Vista
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows
Entry #2

Hi Klingham, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

The output of your BCD is very, very weird. What version of EasyBCD are you using?

First of all thx for the fast reply. My version was 1.51 so I updated it to 1.7.2. However there still seems to be a problem:

At startup I now get \NST\NeoGrub.mbr error

Ah, much better! :smile:

Go to the "Change Settings" page and change the drive for the "NeoGrub Bootloader" entry to C:\

That should do the trick.

:xHi again. I changed the drive to C:\ but I still got the same message: \NST\neosmart.mbr is missing or is broken.

So what I tried then was the following: since the bootloader path says \NST\NeoGrub.mbr, I copied the map NST\ with the menu and neogrub.mbr right on my C: drive.


So normally the path was C:\Device\HarddiskVolume1\NST\NeoGrub.mbr and now it is C:\NST\NeoGrub

When I restart my computer i dont get the missing or broken message but the following:

Can you uninstall NeoGrub; do EasyBCD | Diagnostics | Reset BCD Data; then attempt to reinstall it?
