    Thanks for all the help, I think that I have fixed it using a Ubuntu boot USB, and using this guide :

    How to Repair, Restore, or Reinstall Grub 2 with a Ubuntu Live CD or USB


    To be honest I'm not sure what happened, and as I wasn't clever enough during this process to take notes I'm not much the wiser!

    I don't really remember this part, do you mean during the trouble shoot or the original installation?

    Honestly neither do I... :/

    The only thing that I've set in the BIOS is that the USB boots first. Probably not what you meant!

    Thanks very much Lakshmipathi - I've actually sorted it now (I'm pretty sure I have at least)

    Is this something that I should still follow up / check?

    No, you don't need to take my grub.cfg changes now. Glad to hear your issue is resolved ! Have fun with Linux!
