tried to install ubuntu on removable drive, now primary won't boot windows
It was my intention to install feisty on my removable hard drive. I sort of accomplished the mission in the sense that there are now Ubuntu files on it.
However, 2 problems have arisen:
Issue #1. When I switch to booting from the primary hard drive, instead of getting Windows (this should happen) (or Linux), instead I get an error message along the lines of:
"Failed to load grub 1.5
these look suspiciously like Linux error messages to this poor sot.
Issue #2. The removable drive won't boot up Linux now. It worked once ~ the time immediately after installation. So I've had to use the cd to boot up.
Failed solution to #1: I tried using the windows cd recovery console as well as the installation recovery option. No dice either way.
Does anyone have a quicker solution than reformatting and reinstalling windows?
Proposed Solution to #2: If I physically disconnect all of my hard drives except the removable and then reinstall feisty on it, will that fix the boot problem there?
