Right now I have this setup:
/dev/sda1 is NTFS where I store my cross-platform accessible pictures/videos/etc.
/dev/sda2 is my Windows 7 boot partition
/dev/sdb1 is ext4 partition with Ubuntu 11.04 mounted at /
/dev/sdb2 is my swap partition
/dev/sdb3 is my /home partition
Problem is, when I boot, Grub (I think it's grub, at least) wants to automatically boot from /dev/sda1 but freaks out when it senses NTFS so it sends me to grub rescue mode where I follow this guide and get it to boot from
I've set my BIOS boot order preference to prefer hd1 over hd0, but that doesn't help. I've also run
sudo update-grub to see if I just needed to update grub after making all these new partitions and such.
Any ideas how to remedy this? I'd love even a grub menu over immediately booting into grub rescue mode.
