    Question How many users have dual boot unavailable after upgrading to Lucid?

    I am seeing threads on this issue all over the place: different users, with different versions of Windows on different setups, all sharing the same problem:

    Dual boot was OK with earlier versions of Ubuntu
    Dual boot is unavailable after upgrading to Lucid

    Is it just chance?
    Are we all doing something wrong without noticing?

    I have kept reading (and trying out) different methods here and there, still no success ...

    Unhappy Re: How many users have dual boot unavailable after upgrading to Lucid?

    Yes, I have, thanks

    Didn't work, though

    In any case, why should the SAME Windows configuration work under 7.04 through 9.10 Ubuntu releases, and then stop working under Lucid?

    That is indeed my question

    I have this problem, my dual boot worked great under 9.10 with XP dual boot. Now I can't boot XP. No solution yet. I think we need a sticky thread on this so we can get some solutions.

    I dual booted Ubuntu 9.10 & Windows XP. I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4, and now can't boot into Ubuntu, but I can boot into XP

    my dual boot still works w/ vista but the menu titles are wrong.

    booting into vista leads to the recovery mode, and booting into the recovery mode leads to the normal vista.

    weird

    Re: How many users have dual boot unavailable after upgrading to Lucid?

    I was running xp and 9.04, I'm new to linux, got both working ok in January, read that in order to upgrade to 10 I should first run all the updates for 9, did that, upgraded, 10 worked great, but selecting XP (in the Grub mgr)- only gives a blinking cursor in the upper left. downloaded testdisk but didn't see where I could run it (maybe it runs from a text screen somehow), ran my XP cd, did not give me an option "R" where I could get to fixmbr, only the install - which it did, now it boots with 2 selections of XP, thank God one of them is my old XP with all files and software intact, the other is a new install. But now there is no Ubuntu option. What next to get back to dual boot so I can learn Ubuntu? Can I edit the boot ini in Windows to point to the other partition with Ubuntu on it? And what do I enter, does Ubuntu/grub need special text in there?
