Upon rebooting after updating from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 10.10 (with wubi), the screen displayed the following error message:

"error "prefix" not found"

After that, the screen displayed a single flashing line. What should I do to get Ubuntu working again?


After some research and folowing the lead of the OP http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11611236#post11611236 the conclusion to question was using Boot-Repair

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
