I'm a genius by the way...

Here is my system

Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

I upgrade to 9.04 then Did a full install and then because of the intel graphics regression I reinstalled 8.10

Having another amazing idea I decided I wanted to checkout grub2

Without looking at any of the docs or checking to see if anyone else has had any problems I installed grub2 using apt-get.

Upon reboot my 8.10 systems are listed but when I go to load them I have no luck (Device not found or not recognized)

The 9.04 systems boot fine.

The question is, (I am at work on a windows box and curious)

can I chroot into the 8.10 system and apt-get remove grub2 then apt-get install grub from a 9.04 system?

This is more a technical question I don't need code, I should look that up myself as repentence. Really is chroot the right tool to use?

Thanks in advance
