    grub rescue boot

    Okay, I have a system with a dual boot of windows 7 32-bit ultimate and ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit. I use EasyBCD to manage my boot menu. Apparently during my upgrade to ubuntu 12.10 64-bit, grub failed to reinstall. I now have a grub prompt on a black and white screen. I have tried doing
    Code:
    linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sd1 ro
    however I got back the waring that the linux command is non-existant. Any help is welcome, and I would really prefer not to do a complete reinstall of ubuntu.

    Do not know EasyBCD. May be best to use their forums if you want to keep it.

    If you want help with grub2's boot loader.

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:
