This is a little to technical for me but I know the recent Vista security
updates conks out grub.  I posted the question on here a few weeks ago but
never got a response.  The solution I googled up was a little to much for me
so I had to reinstall Ubuntu.  I did not know that Vista took three reboots
to do the complete update so I got to reinstall Ubuntu three times.  I know
this is not addressing your question but there is something funky about the
Vista security update on a dual boot system.  The problem might be the
creation of Vista.
