Okay, will send you direct to you a grub2 iso. Burn image, not data to
get that cd.
Just to recap, requote below earlier message (to other people) sent
about a day earlier.
Do a search....
grub>search -f /vmlinuz
note output as in "(hd0,5)"
then do this....
grub>linux (hd0,5)/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5
note replace (hd0,5) and sda5 with the output from the search.
note vmlinuz not vmlinux; linux not linuz
After booting up,at terminal, remember to
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo install-grub /dev/sda
if you have error message at sudo install grub /dev/sda,
sudo apt-get install grub2
note : follow instructions that follows and set to sda at "sudo apt-get
good luck - goh lip
