Unhappy Ubuntu on a pendrive: grub problem


i have a similar problem , i installed ubuntu 10.04 onto a pendrive, it all works fine , but the catch is i have to keep my pen drive inserted to get the grub menu. is there a work around to get grub to work off my hdd( my guess is it is in my pen drive along with the ubuntu files)

Don't post questions in dead threads. I reported your question to be put in its own thread.

Depends on several things - easy enough though. Go to sf.net and get the bootinfoscript - run that (from Linux) and post the RESULTS.txt so we can advise.
