Thanks for the info,
but followed the instructions and as usual I get the grub rescue
prompt which is a total different issue and question.
But I tried what I have been trying to get the normal boot menu up
now its saying no such partition.
I ls at the rescue prompt and it shows the (HD0) but it gives no
partitions to go along with it.
