    /boot/grub/device.map (END)

    i also tried it with sudo gedit and there is nothing there


    is it supposed to be that way??

    removing the "Ubuntu" option from EasyBCD causes windows to boot and it doesn't load grub

    device.map should have an entry for sda.
    add this line in device.map file and try to re-install GRUB
    Code:
    (hd0) /dev/sda

    that worked perfectly thank you, its all working seemlessly!!


    but i just want to be sure, since i reinstalled grub on hd0, does that mean it has overwritten the MBR? Because from everything that i have been told, i am not supposed to install grub on the MBR because it will mess up vistas boot.

    in two Harddisks dual boot setup, one should install GRUB in the MBR of Linux Harddisk only But if Linux and Vista are installed in Single Harddisk and you have to install GRUB in MBR only. you can use Vista Boot Loader too but its very easy to manage dual boot setting through GRUB.
