    Dual boot problem. Getting grub> prompt

    A while back I installed Ubuntu 9.04 to dual boot with Windows XP and everything worked fine.

    After a couple months hiatus I attempted to boot Ubuntu and I get a "Grub>" prompt.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I have no idea what this is or how to get past it.
    I don't know enough about gurb to get any useful info from previous posts.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Can you boot into Windows OK - or is this just when you try to boot Ubuntu?

    Windows boots ok. When I select Ubuntu I get the grub> prompt.

    Is this wubi inside a windows partition?

    Is this the error?
    The Grub menu does not appear at boot up. Instead you get a "grub:rescue>" or "grub:sh>" prompt
