My last post disappeared in nirwana. If it ain't working you got the option to download a win 7 rescue disk.

I am using Win7 now (and running Seagate backup!) thx for your help but I think I have too many partitions installed now. I installed Ubuntu twice, uninstalled once, ..., installed again and now GRUB loader seems to be functional (haven't tested Ubuntu yet!)
