I am new to Ubuntu and i messed up the installation a bit.
I am running Windows 7 and wanted to install ubuntu alongside. I've done this before with older versions successfully but this time i forgot an important step.
While installing the Ubuntu 12.10, I forgot to create the boot partition and then my system refused to boot to my hard disk.
I booted to a live usb and tried to perform a boot repair by using the tool provided, I created a boot drive using gparted and when the boot repair installed grub in the boot partition but was not able to remove grub from the original boot. when i booted next time, i boot to the grub command line. From here i am able to boot to Win 7 but I am not able to boot to ubuntu. The command "kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3" works, but when i give the command "boot" it gives a lot of lines of something I can't catch but stops after a while saying something about usb found and gives a serial number.
I request your help on trying to boot to ubuntu. I would like to avoid formatting my entire hd as this is the easy way out and I wouldn't learn anything.
Thank You in advance for all the help.
P.S.: I am currently working on windows, i am able to boot to ubuntu only with live usb .
