Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LS alongside windows vista. I used a USB, I tried Ubuntu and then clicked on "Install Ubunutu 12.04 LS". I used the standard installation on an internal drive and chose a 85 gigabytes partition for Ubuntu. Everything seemed to go fine. I rebooted my system and got the error: error:no such device : random number grub rescue>

Therefore I don't have access to Ubuntu or to windows vista.

I tried to reinstall Ubuntu from the USB, got the same error, them I tried boot-repair from a booted USB, and I still have the same error. Here is a link the the boot-info generated by boot repair.

Any advice would be appreciated.
