To boot a second root.disk please refer to this:

You will need to edit the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom as described in that link and then update the grub menu with:
sudo update-grub

If you need further help, then please provide the location (partition, directory) of each root.disk

PS I should clarify... that link refers to booting the development release of Ubuntu using Wubi. You need to refer to the Point # 3. where it talks about making the other root.disk (new.disk) bootable.

Again, if anything is unclear, just ask.

Can you help with this problem?
