I'm wondering if perhaps you are having a similar problem to what my
friend in Sweden had - particularly since you had/have linux on sda as well.

Grub is saying that root is on hd1,4 (sdb5 or hdb5) - I wonder if
perhaps the upgrade caused grub to point to a previous root location hda2.

Can you boot into feisty and then open gparted and see where your mount
points are, and boot flags on both drives?

Also can you please:

sudo grub
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
grub> quit
Note the location that find /boot/grub/stage1 returns then quit.
