Re: Upgrade Win-XP to Win7, now can't boot into Ubuntu
Both my systems are 6 years old, but I upgraded to grub2.
At first I did not like it as I was multi-booting with chain loading and had grub in every PBR. Grub2 does not like to install to PBR, but actually works better as it can directly boot every install. Also at first we did not understand grub2 and it has a lot of changes. I dual booted with XP until this year.
If you do a new install, which is about your only choice, you will get grub2. Bigger issue will be Unity. I installed gnome-panel or fallback which is almost like gnome2. Others may suggest Kubuntu, Xbuntu or Lubuntu or some of the off shoots like Mint.
