In the past I've used Vista's boot manager to boot Ubuntu 9.04 and earlier. The basic steps I used are outlined in the first section of this article.
With 9.10 however I have hit a snag. The bootsector file I grabbed with dd if=/dev/sda5 (yes that's the partition I told grub to install to) is all zeroes, and obviously does not successfully boot. I know that there are two major changes with 9.10 (ext4 and grub2) so I'm trying to figure out where the problem lies.
