Tried to Alter Boot Priority ~ Now Can't Boot At All
Machine = Lenovo Thinkpad X201i.
Dual-booted Windows 7 from bootable USB
History Ubuntu 11.04 > 11.10 > 12.04 (following upgrade path in each case)
Evverything going well.
Last week acquired another Thinkpad X-121E with AMD E300 Dual Core Processor
and am in process of setting up dual-boot on that one.
Before proceeding my plan was to use my GParted-Live 0.4.8-6 USB stick to boot into my first Thinkpad X201i to look at the arrangement, to familiarise myself with what I did.
I was surprised that it continued to Windows & didn't load GParted, so I went into The BIOS to change the boot order and after doing this I now am unable to boot into anything! The bootloader was GRUB so I suspect I have somehow damaged it.
I have learned NOT to go into the BIOS late in the day when tired. I have learned a lot of things and would really appreciate some help as to how to get back on my feet after this stumble.
I've attached some snaps of the current BIOS arrangement and eagerly await and help, any advice, any anything!
