Grub is a Linux Boot Loader... perhaps you should explain what you were doing with Linux (if at at all). More details will get more help!

I tried to use Partition Magic. And I screw up, as it seems.
Not sure what, I must admit.

I would be inclined to use your restore CD to re-install... or from the restore hidden partition but if you've been fooling around with Partition Magic you may have dashed all hope.

Thanks. Anyway, BUT I have managed to restore everything- NO data lost. A friend of mine said you need to reinstall Ubuntu 9.04 from the live CD. (He is good at computers-I am not, but he made the same mistake as I did). I reinstalled 9.04 and now all is up and running again. If this works with UBUNTU 9.10, unknown.
Hope this can help someone else too.

... are you saying that you can now log into windows aswell?

... or are you stuck with Ubuntu only?
