Kubuntu 12.04 x64 will not boot after install
I have the following situation:
I am on a 64-bit system.
I have a brand new hard drive.
I have installed Windows 7 on the first partition on this hard drive.
Now I am trying to install Kubuntu 12.04 next to my Windows.
The Kubuntu installer seems to install fine, but when I boot I get this:
error: no such partition
This means I can boot neither Kubuntu nor Windows. I've googled a bit. I've found out (url=http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1359802]here[/url]) that I can restore the Windows boot loader by booting with the Kubuntu Live CD and doing this:
The above allows me to boot Windows, which is nice and all, but it doesn't help me get into my Linux.
sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
I've tried to restore GRUB by booting with the Kubuntu Live CD and using the GUI tool "Boot-Repair" (and doing a "recommended repair"). That didn't help. It just brought back the error message "error: no such partition".
I have a (presumably) functioning Kubuntu installation, but I cannot boot it. Can anyone help me set up GRUB so I can get into my Linux?
Thanks in advance!
