    Ubuntu won't start

    Hey guys, first of all sorry for my english but it's not my native language
    I am having problem starting ubuntu . I used to use ubuntu but after an upgrade they crashed
    This is what i get when I try to start them :
    GNU GRUB version 1.99-12ubuntu5.1
    Mnimal BASH-like editing is supported , For the first word , TAB lists possible commant completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions
    grub>

    What do I need to do to get ubuntu back ?

    You download the Boot-Repair script into any working Linux, an install or liveCD/DVD/Flash drive.

    Then you run script and if you have Internet connection it will automatically upload a lot of data with details of your install to pastebin.
    It gives you the link to post here, so we can see your data.

    oldfred meant you can use a LiveCD/USB (The CD/USB you used when you first installed Ubuntu) to run boot-info/repair.
