I bottom posted this before which is what I thought was Kosher.  Here we
go again, top post this time.

Nikos, If you have access to another computer download and burn a Boot
CD with boot-repair. It has solved every after install boot problem that
I have ever had,
http://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair/ and the download can be
hard to find is at: http://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home/
