    GRUB not booting on SATA hdd

    When I reboot after installing Mythbuntu I get as far as
    GRUB Loading stage1.5.
    and then it hangs.

    I can boot using a live CD, or a KnoppMyth install, but I'd prefer to use Mythbuntu

    You can try to reinstall GRUB with the live cd.
    When you get to the desktop open a terminal and type the following commands.

    This will get you a grub> prompt
    Code:
    sudo grub
    This will return a location which you have to use in the next command.
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    Enter the location given by the previous command in the next command.
    Code:
    root (hd?,?)
    Next enter the command to install grub to the mbr
    Code:
    setup (hd0)
    Exit the grub shell
    Code:
    quit
    Now Grub will be installed to the mbr.
    Resistance is futile.....you will be assimilated!
