I need help setting up a GRUB or just any bootloader that will work.

I have 4 primary partitions and I was using the Mandriva 2009 GRUB. Everything was working fine. I just finished installing WIN 7 and then I installed a 64-bit version of MDV. I chose to use the GRUB on the Windows MBR.

Every OS I have gets listed on the menu but only Windows and MDV work. My Ubuntu entry shoots me to my Ubunutu Grub then gives me an error 15. Where as before it worked fine.

Again...sopmeone that's an expert at this can you give me some pointers.

What info do you need to help get me in the right direction.....

I'm not sure a grub is entirely your problem here, but really how ubuntu installs.

Since you're booting into Mandriva, I'd probably recommend mounting your boot partition in ubuntu, using the contents of your menu.lst for ubuntu there and popping that into your menu.lst in mandriva.
