Further details.....
upon configfile /grub.cfg, you'll come to 3 entries, you have 25 secs.


scroll to 'Vmlinux' entry, press 'e' to edit and you'll get

linux '(hd0,8)'/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda8 ro
initrd '(hd0,8)'/initrd.img

Amend the (hd0,8) and sda8 to the partition output of the search. Then 
'alt + x' to boot.

Good luck - Goh Lip
