    Actually, just found there is a /boot/grub/menu.lst which is empty.

    There is also a /boot/grub/menu.lst~ which is quite long, I would copy it, but it's on a different machine.

    it starts with:
    hiddenmenu
    title Ubunut 7.10.....

    I don't have the live cd I could make one.

    But grub seems to work. the problem is that menu.lst is gone. and even if it was there, it refers to 7.10 kernel and not 8.04.
