View Full Version : [ubuntu] Tried to Trpple Boot, now only get Error where GRUB should be

July 30th, 2010, 08:30 AM
Hi, I have an IBM T60 which already had Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 running fine in dual boot. For work reasons, I also needed Windows XP, so I started to install it last night. The install didn't work because of lacking SATA drivers, but when I tried to reboot my computer, GRUB was giving an error. [grub rescue>] Rebooted with the live CD and attempted to reinstall GRUB, but I still get the same error when I restart. I reinstalled GRUB with the directions from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

Any advice? I really need to get this running again soon!

Understand with multiple windows installs only the first windows with the boot flag will boot from grub and then in windows you have to choose which windows to boot:

To get each MS to have its own boot loader make a primary partition and set its boot flag on, then install the 2nd product in it. Multibooters, Pictures here worth 1000+ words
