    Upgrade 9.10 to 10.04 boot problem

    I upgraded 9.10 to 10.04 and now it won't boot. The way 9.10 used to boot was after turning on the computer it would go through the bios screen and then a screen would come up and list both operating systems, Windows Xp and Ubuntu. XP would be highlighted and would normally boot if I did not change the highlighted area. If I changed the highlighted area to Ubuntu it would boot into Ubuntu 9.10. Now after doing the upgrade, it gets to the same screen with the two operating systems listed, but when I change the highlighted to Ubuntu an error message is briefly displayed and then it goes back to the screen that lists both operating systems. I think the error message says something like couldn't find Ubuntu, or something similiar to that. Windows XP runs fine when I highlight Windows Xp in that first screen, but I want to be able to run Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu on a secondary drive, but shouldn't it have rewritten the upgraded files on that same drive that had 9.10 on it? Please help!

    Run the boot info script as explained here and post the content of your results file.

    I will check and see if I can boot the 10.04 cd? Up to this point I've been unable to boot from cd, except for the 8.04 Ubuntu cd. All the newer versions won't boot, that is why I did the upgrade rather than a new install. Thank you for your suggestion. I will post my results after trying this!! Thanks again!

    You can run that info script with the 8.04 CD. I frequently use either an old Knoppix or DSL disc just because they boot quickly and seem to work on almost any hardware.

    I ran in terminal and this is what happened?

    To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
    See "man sudo_root" for details.

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    bash: /home/ubuntu/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh: No such file or directory
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    bash: /home/ubuntu/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh: No such file or directory
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ root
    sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.shThe program 'root' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install root-system-bin
    You will have to enable the component called 'universe'
    root: command not found
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install root-system-bin

    Do you have the script downloaded and placed on the desktop? You can't run it if it's not there. You actually have to download the script to run, there is a link in my signature for example. You don't just run the command, that script is not inside ubuntu by default.
    Darko.

    Is the info script displayed on the desktop? Where did it download to?

    What I do is physically find it after downloading it, like mine goes to Downloads, so I actually go to it, double click to open, open terminal, and cd Downloads:

    Then the terminal will even tell you where the RESULTS.txt is saved.

    I downloaded the script, how do I put it in the desktop to run it?

    Here is the result at the end of the script. How do I send you this file? Or I could cut and paste all the info?

    echo Finished. The results are in the file $(basename "$LogFile") located in "$Dir";
    exit
