Ubuntu/Vista Dual Boot Problem...

#1
I recently did a dual boot with Vista and Ubuntu. I wanted the Vista Boot Loader so I installed EasyBCD and made Vista Boot Loader in charge and installed NeroGrub and put in (which I believe) are the right boot options into the Menu.lst file. But when I boot up, select the NeroGrub, then select Ubuntu, I get an "Error 17, File missing" error. Anyone have any ideas on how I could fix this or what went wrong?

Here are the boot options I put into the Menu.lst file:

Hello Wally. Welcome to NST...
UUID lines are only supported by the [thread=642]beta builds of EasyBCD[/thread], so I would recommend installing and using the latest version to boot Ubuntu.
After installing 2.0, first try adding a normal Linux entry under the Linux tab in the Add/Remove Entries section of EasyBCD, making sure to point it at the correct drive and partition Ubuntu is installed to, and then if that doesn't work, go ahead, and uninstall NeoGrub under the NeoGrub tab, and then try adding another Linux entry under the Linux tab again, this time selecting the "Grub is not installed..." check box, and it should work.
If its still not booting after that, then boot from the LiveCD, get to the desktop, and copy over the contents of the /boot/grub/menu.lst into your next post.

See the second link in my sig for more info.
