    Boot info script time again, I think!

    I'll give you the link again because there's a new version compatible with 11.04, here:

    http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/

    Download and run that in Natty and post the output as before and we can take it from there. It's a bit odd because a fresh install of Natty will install grub to the mbr, not the Windows partition, so let's see what the boot script says.

    I'll have to log off soon, but I'll pick this thread up again in the morning.

    Thanks man, but no need for that I already fixed the problem in exactly the same way as before. I just posted and refreshed the thread for others that may experience the similar issue.

    To be honest, this time it was sufficient to run testdisk only and fix windows, without grub-update, but the procedure is still the same and the links are still up-to-date.
