W7 and ubuntu 9.10, then W7 - now ebcd 2.0 fails with grub2


Hi to all,

i've installed on my system (one hd) Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10 (see attachment).


Install order:

- Ubuntu 9.10

- Windows 7

Manage booting with grub2 (i think), fixed post-windows installation with Ubuntu live cd.

After some weeks i need to format Windows 7, so reinstalled it.

My wish is to manage booting from windows, with easy bcd :smile:

Easy BCD 1.7.x doesn't boot Ubuntu 9.10, so i've installed Easy BCD 2.0 beta, and i've create an entry with grub2

Here's my boot:
There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 15 seconds.
Boot Drive: C:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Entry #2
Name: Ubuntu
BCD ID: {a04e23c6-0e1a-11df-b98f-fdebf152b316}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\AutoNeoGrub0.mbr
Now Ubuntu can't boot anyway, after choosing Ubuntu voice from boot list appears the title GRUB4DOS and a command line named grub, like this:

GRU4DOS - various info

grub >
What's wrong? maybe i don't have grub2 because i overwrote it with the second installation of Windows?

You need to reinstall grub to the Linux partition.
Before you had it partly in the MBR and that part has been overwritten by W7.
Then you should be able to delete/add the Linux entry again selecting grub2
