file not found
its not finding either the kernel or initrd for ubuntu

look in ubuntu partition in /boot folder
is menu.lst/grub.cfg listing correct kernel/initrd??

the probem is your thing above says root (hd0,1)
and then kernel /dev/sda7/etc

it should look like this:

title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-11-generic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic
chainloader +1
however, that entry is for 1st hardrive, 2nd partition
where does ubuntu live??
if ubuntu lives on 2nd partition then the above should work?

Have you tried replacing the entry from your Fedora menu.lst you posted for Ubuntu:

title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-11-generic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /dev/sda7/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic ro quiet splash
initrd /dev/sda7/boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic
chainloader +1
with the entry you had in your original Ubuntu menu.lst:

title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-11-generic
uuid aeb54d26-f3df-4479-9671-a4b8a0e59c4a
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-generic root=UUID=aeb54d26-f3df-4479-9671-a4b8a0e59c4a ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-11-generic
The first entry above won't work if Ubunutu is on sda7 and also there is no 'root' entry in it. If you haven't changed your partitions, the second option above should work. If partitions were changed, there would be a different UUID number.


boot, pc
