I'm on a Eee PC and I am running Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04. I'm starting a big project tomorrow and I wanted to cleanly reinstall both operating systems. After entering the pre-install Windows environement, I let my system run as per usual, however, after I returned to my desk I found a blank screen with
error: no such partition and a GRUB rescue command prompt. After digging around a bit online I found
ls which returns
(hd0) (hd0,4) (hd0,3) (hd0,2) (hd0,1) and
set which returns
prefix=(hd0,5)/boot/grub && root=hd0,5
I have Ubuntu on a flash drive, but I can't get that to work because every time I boot up it goes straight to the error screen.
