    GRUB not finding Ubuntu after installing and uninstalling Fedora

    I recently installed Fedora 15 in some empty space alongside my Ubuntu partition. I then tried to boot up, and the only entry in the GRUB menu was Fedora 15. I then booted GParted and deleted Fedora in an attempt to remedy this. However now when I boot up GRUB doesn't show any boot options; it just shows a terminal. I know that my Ubuntu partition is still there (checked with Ubuntu Live CD, GParted), however GRUB doesn't seem to recognize it. Are there any solutions to this? Should I just copy my files to another location and do a fresh install?

    Thanks for the help.
