Is there a method to change the path to the ubuntu partition and load the mbr from ubuntu? Or something else to get ubuntu boot? GRUB bootloader is installed on the same partition like ubuntu.

Hi Eden, welcome to NST.
Are you using EasyBCD 2.0 latest build ?
Grub syntax changed after Ubuntu 8.04 and is not supported in EasyBCD 1.7.
Delete the Linux entry, add it again and tick the "grub isn't ....." box (necessary if Linux does not share the Vista HDD)

Hi Terry!
Yes i use the last EasyBCD 2.0.
I try it but it don't works. I will use two ubuntu installations one on HD3,1 and one on HD3,2.
One time it seem to boot but it show just "GRUB>_" and i can type in something... or it shows the word GRUB up to ten times!!?
