    Thanks. Unfortunately, that doesnt seem to be working either--booted up into Ubuntu, ejected the USB key, ran grub-install on /dev/sda (SSD drive that has my Windows install on it), ran update-grub, which found Windows and Ubuntu, then rebooted--but got the same read error. Put the USB key back in and reboot, and its fine.

    From Boot Repair you can run the Boot Info Script. If you post the contents of RESULTS.txt (easier for us) or paste the link where the results can be viewed we might be able to see what is happening.

    Did you install Grub to sdc and do you have your BIOS set to boot the sdc drive (640GB) first?

    I believe it installed to all of the drives. I'm set to boot from SDA, which is my SSD first. Should this be changed?

    Although the boot info script is an excellent tool. It says the sda drive is looking for Ubuntu on partition 5 of the same drive but sometimes the information in the first section is a bit ambivalent I would try changing the BIOS boot order to sdc and see if it boots.

    Ugh, still nothing--tried setting SDC and SDB as first boot disk in BIOS, and it still gave me the "Loading operating system... Read Error" if the USB key wasn't inserted... Sigh.

    Since this thread is supposed to be about Boot Repair, it might be best if you start your own thread. You are likely to get more viewers in a new thread. Either include the link to the pastebin or post the contents.

    You can provide a link to this thread if you like, but explain your situation in the new post.

    If there is something Boot Repair can do that you haven't tried I'm sure YannBuntu will post in this thread.

    OK, done. Hopefully someone will be able to figure this out... It's got me baffled.

    Dear all,
    Some users report lately that Boot-Repair's update may fail (via Update Manager or when running Boot-Repair's self-update). If you have this problem too, here is how to solve it:

    type in a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) the 2 following commands :
    Code:
    for i in boot-repair clean clean-gui clean-ubiquity-common boot-repair-common boot-sav-gui boot-sav glade2script;do sudo apt-get purge -y $i;done
    then
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
