    Corrupted boot :( need urgent help..

    Hi guys,

    well at the moment I'm currently in distress because my Ubuntu system that has my university assignment doesn't work. Not only that, when I tried to fix it I managed corrupt the dual boot I had and now cannot login into either Windows 7 or Ubuntu (besides the USB tryout version which I'm currently on now).

    Please help me.

    I'll try and describe what happened in the beginning. I was rushing to get to class so I needed to shut down my Ubuntu system quickly. The quickest way was to obviously hold down the off button however later when I got home to finish off my uni assignment I couldn't boot into linux! I just get a dos command line with the word grub on it..

    Next I tried fixing it using the method found here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...ing%20GRUB%202

    However not only did it not fix my problem I now can't boot into anything except from this Ubuntu Live CD.

    D:

    edit: I'm using Gnome Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop

    To get more info about your boot environment, run those script from the LiveCD, follow the instructions on the website:
    http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/

    Then post its result here, in code-tags please (the #-button in the editor), or attach the text file.
