I want to install 12.04 on one hard disk and Windows 7 on another.
Windows 7 is set already installed on one hard disk, but when I try to boot
to it I get a "grub rescue" prompt and I don't know what to do with that.
I installed 12.04 to the other drive and again I got the grub rescue prompt
when I restarted the system to complete the installation.
I want the boot loader screen to appear at each bootup and I want the option to
boot to either operating system, with ubuntu being primary (default).
On which drive, windows of ubuntu, should I place GRUB2 bootloader?
How should this decision be related to the boot sequence of the two hard drives,
as determined in my bios settings?
Please be specific and provide details. I was on to top of these installation
issues, including GRUB2, but I've forgotten almost everything as everything has
been going very well with 11.04 for almost 2 years. I know how to modify a working
grub2 configuration but I don't know what to do when its not working.
Thanks so very much (fortunate to have this support forum).
