Can't load Ubuntu 1010 from CD and save old Ubuntu at the same time.
 
I've been using Ubuntu for a couple of years and like it just fine. However I updated to Ubuntu 1010 and started downloading most recent updates and now when I turn on my machine the cursor just flashes and Ubuntu won't load up. I sent off and received a Ubuntu 1010 CD, but can't figure out how to load it up without loosing all my data from my previous Ubuntu. I think somehow my GRUB got corrupted, because I can still get the information when I look at it from a second harddrive that I also have Ubuntu on. What would someone suggest I do?

Thanks in advance Jimez

Welcome to the forums Jimez.

The Ubuntu wiki has instructions for repairing broken GRUB: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling GRUB 2
