It could be related to Bug #8497 ( ) where grub doesn't detect the right names for things. I had a similar error (filed as Bug #66667) and had to manually select the partition to boot off: instructions here:

Please post any findings / additional updates to the bug report(s) referenced above.

You may also want to use the latest version of Ubuntu, which is 7.04

Williamts99: I agree 7.04 or 6.06 LTS are the versions to recommend over 6.10. However, FYI Bug #8497 is still open in Ubuntu 7.04

Can you help with this problem?
