I dual boot Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows XP. After an upgrade to Ubuntu 10.4 online, I can boot XP, but not U10.4 It looks to me that U10.4 does not find the MBR. Fortunately I can boot into XP.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

You could try reinstalling Grub. If you have the 'alternate' CD, it has a useful feature for doing this.

Take care if you have more than one hard drive which one has Grub installed - it must of course be bootable. This same one must be the first choice for the BIOS boot menu.

You can investigate these issues using the "Disk Utility" (System > Administration menu on the Live CD).
