Lucid-Disk 1 of 2 failed , now GRUB2 chokes on dual boot.
Dual boot PC, boot disk and WIN XP are on good disk, Ubuntu was installed on failed disk. (I prefer separate disks for each OS).
I know I will need to reinstall Ubuntu later, and of course, GRUB2 now crashes without the Ubuntu disk.
Confirm that the only thing I need to do when I get the new drive installed and partitioned is to boot my XP disk in Recovery Mode and type "fixmbr", (then reboot to confirm clean WIN operation on the existing disk) then install Ubuntu as normal on the new disk.
I somehow buggered up a similar procedure a few years ago...just need a confirmation!
