View Full Version : [ubuntu] Corrupted boot :( need urgent help..

Hi guys,

well at the moment I'm currently in distress because my Ubuntu system that has my university assignment doesn't work. Not only that, when I tried to fix it I managed corrupt the dual boot I had and now cannot login into either Windows 7 or Ubuntu (besides the USB tryout version which I'm currently on now).

Please help me.

I'll try and describe what happened in the beginning. I was rushing to get to class so I needed to shut down my Ubuntu system quickly. The quickest way was to obviously hold down the off button however later when I got home to finish off my uni assignment I couldn't boot into linux! I just get a dos command line with the word grub on it..

Next I tried fixing it using the method found here:

However not only did it not fix my problem I now can't boot into anything except from this Ubuntu Live CD.


edit: I'm using Gnome Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop
