After my lastest update for Ubuntu and Windows XP, I got a Grub error on booting the next day.
ls lists the following (without () ):
sd0 sd1, msdos sd2 sd5 sd6
When I tried to get into one with
(sd0,xy)/ it doesn't detect system or unknown file system error.
I tried to boot to a live session with a Knoppix live CD and found out that all data exists. I also tried to recover with TestDisk and it finds all systems. Here is the test disk result:
Start End Size in sectors 1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 7079 254 63 113740137 2 E extended LBA 7080 0 1 12161 254 63 81642330 5 L HPFS - NTFS 7080 1 1 10266 254 63 51199092 [Schule] X extended 12031 30 1 12161 254 63 2102625 6 L Linux Swap 12031 31 33 12161 254 63 2102530
I've 1 winxp-home, 1x Ubuntu (ext3+swap) and 1 winxp prof and then I wrote on mbr with TestDisk but I always get the same errors with Grub.
What should I do? I need both XP and Ubuntu. Help me please.

the last part shows that i now use the windows boot loader so that i can acces at least one OS
but shouldnt i also get acces to my ubuntu partitions with live-linux-cds ?
or do i have to boot with grub to get to those files only ??
