    Where is menu.lst?

    I had 9.10 installed using Wubi, and upgraded to 10.04.

    My problem now is that when I go to load up Ubuntu (via. GRUB Bootloader) it says "Error: You need to load the kernel first"

    I have searched for a while to try and get this fixed, coming very close: I just don't have a menu.lst file anywhere in my files! (Accessed files via. this method)

    Any help in editing the menu.lst file is appreciated!

    I have not used Wubi, just regular Ubuntu installs, but I guess that this applies to Wubi as well:

    In 10.04, Grub has been replaced by Grub 2, and menu.list is now grub.cfg
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old ISO files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.
