My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?

Just installed Ubuntu for the first time. I have it on two separate drives. When I boot (from my main drive with the Windows XP install) it gives me two options: -Windows -Ubuntu

if I select Ubuntu and hit enter, it goes to GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3.

If I change the boot drive to the one with Linux on it, it boots perfectly. BUT I don't want that, I'd like a dual boot option and I'd like to be able to access the content on my Windows Hard Drive.

Any tips on how to fix this? I tried boot repair (running through the auto steps) and it didn't help.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

@JacobJohanEdwards the OP did not mention anything about a black screen issue. – Peachy Aug 26 '12 at 12:26

It seems your GRUB from first drive "chainloads" to GRUB at second drive. Try uninstalling GRUB from second and run update-grub on first one.
