    As yancek has pointed out you have no initrd file in the boot folder, also the uuid is for sda10 rather than sda11. I suggest if you have not used Ubuntu yet you do a fresh install.

    I have just tried to install Ubuntu twice now.. and this would be the 3rd time total now.. and still I can't boot from it. i have formatted sda11 every time i have installed... so... yeah. I tried clicking install from cd boot up, and clicking the install icon, on the try it cd boot up option. So need help to install Ubuntu atm I guess...

    I ran those commands again, in case you need them, I put them in quote form for easier reading:

    Nothing has changed. Do you understand the difference in Linux numbering compared to Grub? Ex: sda1=(hd0,0), Grub starts numbering at zero, Linux numbering convention for drives starts at one. Your results from your last post are the same as your previous one. You re-installed Ubuntu and re-formatted yet when you did the mkdir /media/sda11 it showed: File exists. That would not happen if you formatted, it would be gone. Additionally, the contents of the /boot directory are the same as you previously posted and there is no initrd file. Your entry from your original Kubuntu menu.lst shows the following:


    (hd0,10)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic root=UUID=8527e682-a2e9-4a32-b82b-d8b23a022902

    The results of your UUID are:
    8527e682-a2e9-4a32-b82b-d8b23a022902 -> ../../sda10

    The UUID above shows 'sda10' and this same UUID in your menu.lst shows (hd0,10) which is sda11.

    Are you still trying to use the Kubuntu Grub to boot? I'm not sure why you don't get an initrd file, I think in your last install you installed to a different partition as your results are showing the same as from your previous post.

    Load your install CD (do not try to install anything), do 'sudo grub' and when you get the grub prompt (grub>) type 'geometry (hd0) and post results.

    I assure you that partition 11, was deleted, then recreated,then formatted the first install, and then just formatted the second install. Not to include the very first time I installed Ubuntu before I cam here. So that partition has been deleted and recreated twice, and formated 3 times..

    As for the command. You were not very specific at all what to do.. so I am guessing you meant, let the "Ubuntu CD" boot up and load itself on to my memory, then go to terminal and do the command. So here that is:

    drive 0x80: C/H/S = 9730/255/63, The number of sectors = 156312576, /dev/sda
    Partition num: 0, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
    Partition num: 4, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
    Partition num: 5, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
    Partition num: 6, Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
    Partition num: 7, Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x82
    Partition num: 8, Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
    Partition num: 9, Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
    Partition num: 10, Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

    ...
