I could only boot into Mepis.
I gave up after reading a few posts on how to recover/re-install grub.
I deleted all partitions with Parted Magic and installed Mint-Debian to see what it is like. I have a copy of my Ubuntu Netbook install created by remastersys if I choose to re-install. Also, all my data is living in Dropbox.
I will mark this thread as 'solved' because I can't code it as 'too complicated to solve at this point in my Linux career'.
Thanks to all for your interest and posts,
