I'm on a new machine, single sata drive.
Installed Windows 7.
Installed 11.10 beta 2, twice:
First with a separate home partition. Grub didn't load and boot was right to win7
Second I blew away the new Linux partitions and installed 'along windows' all defaults. Result was same as above.
I attempted this: No Grub after installing Ubuntu beside Windows 7
And now on boot I get: "error file not loaded," followed by the grub rescue prompt. No grub. No Windows 7.
This has always worked in the past. Windows 7 first, then Ubuntu. Is this a problem with the 11.10 beta?
