Looking at various reports about this error which is related to the version of grub that comes with 9.10 Karmic Koala. The solution would be to burn a copy of 10.04 livecd and follow the steps detailed here Ubuntu Grub Wiki Reinstalling from LiveCD to repair your grub. Later if you are successful it would be advisable to update to 10.04 as it will be more stable in the long run than 9.10
