• 'GRUB' should be a boot loader. This is where partitions comes into play. For an example, I have 2 partitions on one of my laptops. 1. MINT LINUX (of course). and 2. Windows XP PRO. Because my MINT LINUX is set by default to run first, when my computer boots up into the 'GRUB', it will ask me what OS (Operating System) to load. Mint or Windows. Hope this helps.

  • This means that Grub doesn't know where your partitions are. Maybe the article on the web-page below helps to get your problem solved.
    The fifth post will bring your system in original state I believe.
