Hello,
I installed windows on another partition on my laptop after it already had Ubuntu 9.10 working great. As usual it eliminated grub so i though installing it from a live cd would be a great idea. Everything went through quite nicely so i rebooted only to find the grub prompt

grub>

well after reading around the forums it seams this is caused by using a newer live cd which installs grub2. (I used what I think to be a jaunty backup flash drive for the installation, not an actual live cd)

I am now stuck because I do not know hardly anything about grub or grub2

Help, how do I make it so I can select either windows or Ubuntu?

It should run fine from Live USB.
