Recently I installed Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop Edition on my Dell Dimension 2400. I had two hardrives. One containing my whole life and Windows XP. The other a new blank nothing to worry about P.O.S. Anyways, I installed Ubuntu to the blank hardrive and restarted my computer. It stop at loading grub 2.1 or 2.0 i can't remember but it says error21 and i have to restart my computer. I took the new hardrive out and left the one containing XP in. It still tries to load grub and fails. When I put the other hardrive in it still tries to load and fails. I need to know, if possible, how to get it to load my xp and stop trying to load grub.
