Grub not booting error loading operating system
I was wondering if someone could help me with a situation I am having with Grub.
First a little background. I had Ubuntu working fine on a dual boot setup with Windows XP. Everything was fine with Grub and it did what it supposed to do. However, I had a partitioning accident and lost my Windows partition. Needless to say I spent a good 6 hours or so loading everything back on to Windows. BUT (there is always a BUT), Windows decided to replace Grub with a bootloader of it's own and of course it booted fine into Windows, but left Ubuntu in the dust.
Being that I had problems with my Ubuntu partition to begin with I decided to nix it and start over. With reinstallation complete, I booted up the system and I get this error message:
Error: Couldn't load operating system.
And it just sits there.
So I decided to try a "warm boot" from the boot menu instead. I selected the first drive and Grub came up! From here I can get into Ubuntu, but not Windows.
So I have two problems I need to fix:
1) Get rid of the error message on bootup
2) Fix the Windows bootup selection.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
