neogrub and ubuntu9

#1
hi everyone,
i have easybcd with widnows 7 and windows xp both working. i've tryed to install ubuntu 9.1 following the tutorials but when i boot it, it says that the partion can't be booted. i'm trying to use neogrub, but i doens't work either. i think the reason it's that the new grub provied with ubuntu 9 doesn't make any menu.lst file of his own( or maybe i can't find it) tryed to paste in the menu.lst of neogrub what i found in grub.cfg, which is
Code:
#
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
#
### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###
if [ -s /boot/grub/grubenv ]; then
have_grubenv=true
load_env
fi
set default="0"
if [ ${prev_saved_entry} ]; then
saved_entry=${prev_saved_entry}
save_env saved_entry
prev_saved_entry=
save_env prev_saved_entry
fi
insmod ext2
set root=(hd1,3)
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set ea25ce3c-b700-4c4f-a649-eab00be4d3a9
if loadfont /usr/share/grub/unicode.pf2 ; then
set gfxmode=640x480
insmod gfxterm
insmod vbe
if terminal_output gfxterm ; then true ; else
# For backward compatibility with versions of terminal.mod that don't
# understand terminal_output
terminal gfxterm
fi
fi
if [ ${recordfail} = 1 ]; then
set timeout=-1
else
set timeout=10
fi

# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment. Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
### END /etc/grub.d/40_custom ###
and i also tryed to correct that strange name it gives to the hd, "329c80149c7fd139" with its actual name sdb3 (in which are installed ubuntu and grub)
what can i do?
i hope i can copy some of the lines in grub.cfg to the menu.lst file of neogrub, but my actual tentatives didnt' work.
thanks for the attention

Hi hor,welcome to NST.
Ubuntu 9.10 uses grub2
Make sure you're using EasyBCD 2.0 latest build (not 1.7)
Delete your previous attempts at making a Linux entry.
Add a new one selecting grub2 from the dropdown, not legacy grub.
Don't worry that everything "greys" out. Easy2 doesn't need any more information.
