    If it did not work, please open a new thread HERE - - -
    Note from page one #6 - the "HERE" only opens a generic new post - it's not adding to an existing post apparently. Is this correct?

    Going to have to try this out in a few minutes - I added a new HD and had just completed a fully configured new WinXP. Apparently an old Lucid on the old volume has totally confused things. I reformatted that volume away, and reinstalled Lucid (twice) but I still I only get Grub Rescue prompt, and FIXBOOT and FIXMBR don't work.

    This is my last hope before reinstalling EVERYTHING (Win and Lin) again..

    Edit: Note that the Lucid LTS is now 10.04.3, this version here is 10.04.2, FYI. The Boot Repair I just downloaded also appears to be the old version, with the orange illustrations, not the bluish ones.

    !@#$%^!!! This didn't work.
    It scanned the system, then said it would repair the missing GRUB boot, and then gave me a "final confirmation" and then scanned the system again. I rebooted and I am sitll at:

    "GRUB loading.
    error: file not found.
    grub rescue>"

    I'll play around with it and if it screws things up, so what, I have another 5 or 6 hours ahead of me reinstalling Win and Lin...

    Strange: booted to the 10.04.3 CD and looked at the new volume I installed earlier - it's volume name is a large list of characters: 990680ae-1356-4587-98ed-ee5d7535beb9, (the UUID?)and it says ext3/ext4 for filesystem type - I know I formatted that as ext4!

    If you want to start a new thread and post the contents of RESULTS.txt we can take a quick look and perhaps save you the time of reinstalling everything. If you want to do this just post a link here to your new thread.

    @|{urse : happy it helped

    @emarkay : please boot again on your CD, connect internet, update the packages :
    HTML Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    in order to use the last version of Boot-Repair.

    Try "First repair", if no success then "Second repair", and indicate us the URL that will appear. (this URL will contain the BootInfoSummary and the log in order to help us helping you )

    That explained the reason for my problem...

    That led me back to trying the secured ubuntu install cd and boot-repair again.

    Here is the results of "boot info scrip" before I tried the purge grub method:

    unlzma: Decoder error
    The difference is that instead of re-installing grub2 in sda, I had it installed in sdc. Notice there are two grub entries in the second results? At first I thought it didn't work, but I was still booting from sda. I had to go into the BIOS and change the boot HDD. In my motherboard BIOS, I changed the boot HDD from Maxtor [modelnumber] to AAR [forgot the rest of the name of the RAID array].

    Once I did that, my PC was booting from sdc instead of sda, and the second grub2 entry. Now I can boot Ubuntu 11.04 (in sda) and WinXP (in sdc) from the grub2 in sdc.

    It may be that some folks may need to change the boot order in their motherboard BIOS - if they have Windows and Ubuntu in different HDDs. I don't know for sure, but it's a thought.

    Of coarse, I could be completely wrong about why my boot issue was fixed. I'd like to know what you see in my two results report to see if there is a better solution that I might have tried? I mean, would there have been a way to get WinXP to start with grub in sda and me not having to change the HDD boot order in the mobo BIOS? Also, will there be future problems because I have two grub 2's (one in sda and one in sdc)?

    Thanks. My problem there turned out to be a bumblefinger in the BIOS settings. I "thought" HDD-1 was the first Hard Drive in the sequence (after I messed with it earlier in the day to check it) and after I finally looked again there, I found that there was a HDD-0, separate and at the top of the list, away from the other HDDs.

    So it was still finding whatever remnants survived a format of the old GRUB2 on HDD-1, instead of finding one of the many reinstalled Win MBRs on HDD-0.

    I have since spent my day in the corner with the Dunce hat on...

    The last version of Boot-Repair would have solved your problem (by installing GRUB in all your disks).

    By the way, I recommend you download the new Ubuntu Secured CD (I updated it yesterday, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuSecuredRemix )

    No problem I think.

    @emarkay: so everything is fine now?

    @boot experts: do you know any cases where installing grub-pc on a disk can cause problems ? (EFI?)

    The new 32-bit version of Boot-Repair on the live-cd and installed from the package fails with this error message.

    Please use this software in a 64bits session.

    I could not find any older versions so I am unable to use this program at all.

    If you don't have any Ubuntu 64bits CD, you can download Ubuntu Secured 64bits here. It contains Boot-Repair out-of-the-box.
    (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair for more information)
