Hi,

I just recently installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my Vista machine and then reinstalled MBK using EasyBCD 1.7.2. I used the NeoGrub Loader as specified in this guide:

http://apcmag.com/how_to_dualboot_vista_with_linux_vista_installed_first.htm?page=4

However now that I am using MBK as the bootloader, when I select the NeoGrub option, it simply goes through a loading screen and takes me back to the bootloader options. The following is the text I put into the NeoGrub:

title Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic
uuid 947cee8a-9c2b-442d-88cf-1caea1f5ef2c
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=947cee8a-9c2b-442d-88cf-1caea1f5ef2c ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic
quiet
title Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic (recovery mode)
uuid 947cee8a-9c2b-442d-88cf-1caea1f5ef2c
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=947cee8a-9c2b-442d-88cf-1caea1f5ef2c ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic
title Ubuntu 8.10, memtest86+
uuid 947cee8a-9c2b-442d-88cf-1caea1f5ef2c
kernel /boot/memtest86+.bin
quiet

I have no idea what's going on, I'm pretty new to working on this kind of setup so any help is much appreciated ahead of time.
