After Install of Ubuntu grub prompt
 
Hello,

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from a Live CD. My laptop has WinXP installed. After installation when I restarted my laptop I ended up in GRUB prompt.

Now I cannot get Grub menu and boot WinXP.
Please help.

Thanks!

If you want to fix grub -

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Troubleshooting

Otherwise you can fix the mbr by booting from XP CD.
From the recovery console, type -
Code:

fixmbr

Would be better if you use 12.04 LTS because the support for 10.04 LTS ends in april(2013), not much of a point to install that.
Could you post what is the output grub is giving?
Here is the Ubuntu release info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
