Hi all!! I expect someone can help me with this issue
ok here is my question
Recently I installed on my computer a program called "Acronis True Image home" said to be the best program around to make full PC backups.
This software has an option called "Acronis Safe Zone" in which I can specify a partition and the run the software from there (not from windows, standalone
version to backup in case of disaster).
So after I made this...now my computer only can see the XP partition and not the Linux one, no idea why. Maybe it got messed up with grub configuration or
something. So to try and recover my boot backto normal. I saw an option of this software called "Acronis OS selector" so I tought that if I was able to
manually select my linux partition it will be all back to normal. So I decide to rey it out. when the program opens up before any OS it lets you select
the OS that you want to boot. AND THERE was my UBUNTU partition! GREAT!!! everything is solved....WRONG!!! I select it and the screen goes black and start
printing out nines...yes..."9" lots of times...till it crashes.
I know my linux partition its still there untouched cause I can see it from this Acronis OS selector and I can see all the files in the partition. But no
I think the solution here is to insert the ubuntu cd, ADD this "acronis safe zone" (the one I explained at the beginning of this post) to GRUB and apply
changes, correct me if im wrong. The thing is I have no idea of how to do this. I think i need to edit grub.conf file but I dont know how.
I am willing to give any info you guys need in order to solve this! I want my linux back!!!
PS: After I saw that my linux partition was still there. I deactivated the acronis OS selector. So now the PC boots XP directly like if it was a standalone
OS on my system.
Thank you all for the help and sorry for the long post lol!!
