I upgrade two PC at home without any problem, however I got problems with the third.
As you can see, I used ubuntu-secured-remix to try to correct the problem ... with no success with the use of boot-repair
sdba : disk with ubuntu install and this is where is the problem
sdbb : disk with data / backup of my camera
sdbc : usb key.
How is it posssible to reinstall grub on this PC ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated !

try Boot-Repair --> Advanced options --> GRUB location tab --> tick "Separate /boot: sda1" --> Apply

the option doesn't work ...
So I spent time on this problem, as I don't want to reinstall :-)
I found and correct.
The boot-repair didn't work as expected
I don't know what is the root cause of the fatal error during upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10, however I suspect the upgrade program got the same kind of problem as boot-repair.
sda1 : /boot but it is an old one .. from Fedora 7. The PC ran several years with fc7, before I install Ubuntu 12.04
sda2 : / LVM there is a /boot included inside
I think the problem came from the two /boot. One visible easily and the other in the LVM. Programs got confused
Here under is the correction if it can help others :
On another pc, create of a usk bootable key using the program "disk creator" (and ubuntu secured remix 12.10 32-bit)
Program used : plpbm (boot manager) plp bm (http://download.plop.at/files/bootmngr/plpbt-5.0.14.zip)
It is possible then to boot on this usb key.
The pc (Intel Pentium 4 , 2.0Ghz) doesn't allow to boot on a usb key.
PLPBM : very efficiency program !
Then, after boot ALT CTRL F1 ... and go to console mode :-)

After usual update and upgrade, under 12.10, program hostapd was updated to version 1, which is code for my access point !
