I have a Vista/Ubuntu dual boot set up (with Grub to manage it). I am about to upgrade from vista home basic 32 bit to windows 7 ultimate. Before I do though- I want to make sure that this will not mess with my boot loader.
i downloaded the iso for 9.10 and md5sum'd it (perfect) then burned it and booted and ran check disk for errors (also perfect) i then set up a partition in vista by following the exact instructions from the ubuntu forums (and allocated 48GB for ubuntu) and tried to install. it went fine for a while, then showed an error and shut down and rebooted from the live cd again.
I recently installed Precise next to my Vista. Now when I try to boot into Vista it attempts to load and then the bsod flashes and goes back to the grub loader. I then tried to boot into Precise and the boot just started to hang for a couple of minutes. It eventually gave me a screen notifying me that it could not locate /tmp.
My name is Reza & i am a newbie to linux,installed ubuntu just yesterday,

Okay, here is the deal. I installed Ubuntu 11.10 in October or so, so that it would dual boot on my laptop along with Windows Vista. I haven't had any problems with the set up since then. It would boot using the Windows boot loader which I noted was different from my desktop which would use Grub.
I have cleaned an old ubuntu - that caused my Grub loader to go crap. I have managed to put a new ubuntu instead of that - but my Vista is stil unaccessible.
I have made boot-repair to run (but maybe my settings did not worked).
I have checked later the MBR record correction too.
Can anybody chat with me or can I share my screen?
