I am using WUBI to run ubuntu.I upgraded to 10.04 from ubuntu 9 using the update option provided.On restart after the update,i get to grub rescue prompt.Here when i type ls i get the output as hd0 and hd31.I cannot login into windows because the option to select between windows 7 and ubuntu is not available anymore.
It would be great if somebody could suggest a solution to this problem.

So we can see where everything is at - from liveCD:

If you installed grub to the MBR, you will have to reinstall a windows boot loader. Do you have the windows Cd or a Ubuntu liveCD. We can use either to get windows booting.

I can't download the script since the gui is not running from the live cd,only the terminal comes up.I do have windows 7 dvd with me,how can I run from that..

You have to run from a liveCD as it uses linux commands to look at your system.

perhaps you also have a video issue. Try f6 on the boot of the CD and often nomodeset works for initial video, also other special settings for boot systems that need them are available under f6.
