Ubuntu 10.04

I have a multi-boot system with XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Having just updated Ubuntu to ver. 10.04 I now find that I cannot boot my PC. It starts up OK and gets as far as Verifying the DMA data but I then get a message 'No such device' and then a prompt 'GRUB RESCUE >'

I can get no further than this. Has anyone go any ideas?

I ried running EasyBCD using my Windows 7 rescue disk bu the file name as displayed is invaild i.e. 'EasyBCD 1.7.2.exe' The DOS command doesn't like the space.

Double check the connection to the hard drive and check the drive is recognised in the bios - "No such device" - suggests the hdd is not found.

Google for SuperGrub - download and burn to cd to boot from.
It takes a bit of trial and error to rebuild / reinstall Grub but it does work.
