Retrieving partitions at bootup

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed but when booting up the partitions are not visible on the boot loader. I have tried grub-install and update-grub off a live CD but to no avail, fdisk show the partitions still exist. Any advice please,

What partitions? What is on them? Partitions won't be visible on a boot menu unless you have other operating systems on these partitions.
Advice, be a little more clear on exactly what it is that you are looking for, you could start by posting the fdisk output. If you have other operating systems, what are they.
