I've just done an install on a set of disks previously NTFS'd for an XP/Vista dual boot.

The vista side when wrong during an upgrade and now the Vista Loader is sat in the MBR of one of my disks causing some issues with XP.

So I put on Gutsy and after swapping the hdd boot priority found GRUB but now grub does what the live disk did the first time - it tries to load gutsy with quiet and splash but still after setting boot commands to noquiet and nosplash i still get my display turning off after the kernel is loaded
Having to run off the gutsy live CD until i can get a definitive answer.
