I booted from the cd and it asks whether I want to do an install a recovery install or exit...I chose recovery and typed in fixmbr and it went back to the c prompt and I typed exit and It tried to load into ubuntu after reboot and I got the grub error 25 again.
Tried fixboot...said it couldn't find system drive.....argh
Is there any way to fix the grub loader?...I am downloading the stupid ubuntu again....this is taking forever.....I erased it off mom's computer because she doesn't like my stuff on it.
I am currently waiting for ubuntu to finish dl'ing again so I can reburn and check md5 sum....the sum on my MEPIS cd is fine.
