GRUB - my Ubuntu 9.1 installation will not boot
thanks for getting back to me so quickly
i'm afraid that I am not a programmer and the page you sent me to is full of information but it is way to cryptic for me - at least right now.
i have created an installation of Ubuntu 9.1 in a 50 gb partition at the "other end" (not the beginning) of HD1 (the 2nd hard drive)
it is the ONLY partition on that drive and i have no partitions on the first hard drive
i am trying to set up a machine with 6 operating systems (4 versions of windows and 2 versions of linux) and i have chosen to install ubuntu 9.1 32 bit first
It is apparently NOT ok to set up Ubuntu 9.1 in a partition at the end of the second drive. it will install but when i restart the machine, it won't boot into the OS. So, after reading about the reboot problem and seeing that the partition seemed to NOT be bootable, i needed to know more about GRUB.
All i need are the commands that need to be input - I certainly cannot decipher all of the information on that page. If you could point to that, I would sure appreciate it.
