Just installed Ubuntu netbook 10.04 on my lenovo s10 using wubi i have a xp OS installed. it was working find until i updated it using the update manager. it updated the grub and after restarting. after the bios it shows error no such device 20152903-2e13-49ac-86d8-0de3dbbe67ff and it has a command line that says grub rescue>

i'm practically new in linux and want to try it out.

BTW my HD was partition into two parts C: (where the xp is) and D:(where the ubuntu was installed).

If you are using a seperate partition for ubuntu there is no point in using wubi. It just causes problems. Your problem is probably fixable but I would strongly urge you to do a regular (native) install. Boot from an ubuntu USB stick and install from the livesession.

Anyway, to fix your problem ad interim, perhaps try this (although the fix is for 9.10 i suspect its the same problem):

You've installed grub to your hard drive MBR (it's been happening with the latest grub updates). With wubi you need the windows bootloader. Either replace it with your windows repair cd/dvd or install a comparable bootloader such as lilo using the ubuntu live cd:

sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr

Just want to try out ubuntu. so i decided to install it on a free partition .. in fear of doing something that may corrupt my other OS.ehehe.. but i will be installing it side by side with xp...
about the problem i encountered. i did some research and found out about super grub disk and use it to fix the bootloader.. Thanks for the advice .eheh.
