    I'm not the most savvy here but I would boot using your Live CD and see if you can see the hard drive and information. I'm not sure if it's a GRUB problem or not.

    If you can boot from a live dvd/usb and mount the hard drive, it's easy. You can just copy your important files to a backup medium and try to fix your update. If you can't mount the hard drive (which should only happen when the computer was interrupted whilst updating the boot record, which is unlikely), then you are in serious trouble.
