error: out of disk on loading linux.mod

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm not sure if this is a GRUB issue or a Ubuntu issue, so posting it here and hoping it's the right place. I recently (ie, within the last few days) installed Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit on my system. When I rebooted, I got: Grub loading... error: out of disk grub_rescue> Searching on the error message, I found some different workarounds - commenting out "if [ -n \${have_grubenv} ]; then save_env recordfail; fi" in /etc/grub.d/10_linux, and uncommenting "GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true" in /etc/default/grub - but neither worked. Not on their own and not together. Following the instructions here, I get the 'error: out of disk', when I try to load the linux.mod (insmod /boot/grub/linux.mod). I downloaded the super grub disk, and that worked. I can load up my system using that, but simply copying the boot commands from that can't be the ideal solution, can it? Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appeciated. (HowTos)
