Hi kiran.ursal,

Unfortunately, I'm not too adept at Linux yet. In fact, as I type this, I am an LQ Newbie, like you. But I know a bit of stuff, so maybe I can help...
rootnoverify is seen only in the GRUB bootloader, so that seems to be where the problem is. I'm no programmer, but I'd guess that GRUB is configured to boot an OS from location (hd1,0) that isn't there. Maybe you should check that the config file, found at /boot/grub/grub.cfg usually, is set up to load Ubuntu 12.04 where it is located. Remember, DO NOT mess with the config file unless you are working with a copy. Also, I am still a Linux newbie, and most of this is just guesswork.

Did you do a kernel update? or do you know if you did? Did you run update-grub?

How many hard drives do you have attached? (hd1,0) isn't going to do anything on Grub 2. The (hd1) part is pointing to the second physical drive, the '0' in (hd1,0) won't work because Grub2 starts counting partitions with 1. If you have any Linux Live CD, boot it and go to the site below and read the instructions, download and run the bootinfoscript and post the results.txt file. This will show detailed information on your drives/partitions as well as boot files:

Respective sir ,
First thanx for your reply actually I reinstall Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in another HDD by connecting problemetic HDD with it. After installation Ubuntu in new HDD it show me two entry,s in grub menu and choose both menu one by one I got my answer thier actually my newly Ubuntu12.04 is also start and my old Ubuntu also start.
So I think may be it is boot loader error.
