I have had the EXACT SAME problem you had a couple of times. The first time I was about to go crazy. Anyway, I'm a newbie to linux but not to computers.
All you have to do is go into your CMOS setting in your bios. Make sure all of your hard drives are set to manual (or user) and to LBA mode. Ohh, and make sure your the third boot device, after floppy and cd-rom is your primary HD on your master line. It could have been changed one way or the other.
That should fix your problem. I don't know why it works. I would have to understand the programming involved in the Grub bootloader program. but that should solve it.
