    Upgrade to 12.10 - Grub Rescue

    Hello

    I've just upgraded to 12.10 from 12.04 over the internet.

    I now get a prompt saying grub rescue.

    How can I repair grub and allow my machine to boot?

    Happy to post any info required to diagnose.

    I think the word is ......... HELP

    Many thanks

    Can you confirm that you have done this?

    Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sdb (500GB) disk!
    Can you boot those Windows operating systems? Do you see a Grub menu?

    Regards.

    Thanks for that - I was saved by boot rescue (embracing my natural engineering urge to tinker). All OS's booting fine and a nice purple grub menu to boot

    Cheers
