Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Grub error 17
I was running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS successfully on my Dell M1530 until yesterday. I did not respond quickly enough to a warning about an extremely low battery level. The machine shut down and I can longer boot. I get an error that says:
Grub loading stage 1.5
GRUB loading, please wait....
I have a disk for an older version 8.4 and I can load that into a live session. I don't want to re-install from a USB or Disk for fear of wiping out a number of important files I have on my hard drive. The hard drive does not appear to have crashed--but I'm not sure how to check it. I cannot "see it" with the live session of 8.10 mounted.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
