I recently installed Ubuntu 8.04, before that I had 11.10. My intend was to use both of them.

After installation of 8.04, an item for 11.10 didn't appear in grub. What can I do to get it back?

PS: 11.10 using ext4, 8.04 using ext3, so I can't do mount operations.

If I remember correctly, Ubuntu 8.04 used grub 1, and ext4 was not supported yet, so it is most probably a grub problem.

The solution is to start with a 11.10 livecd and restore grub 2 using the usual procedures, see for example Recovering Ubuntu After Installing Windows (I know, you don't installed Windows, but the procedure is the same).

thanks, I'll try this as soon as I get a 11.10 livecd. –  emrah Dec 25 '11 at 16:00
