well, as i said above, i found some time (sleep time) to try your suggestions. all to no avail =(. I'm considering now restoring the MBR with FIXMBR and using NTLDR as as the boot manager :(

Have you tried dual booting on single drive (disable or remove other). Also not sure if it matters but are both drives same type i.e both SATA's IDEs or mixed and both set to master? Just read post here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=838060

Hey guys, I would like to say thank you for all your time and wonderful input with helping here. I ended up giving up on Grub booting succesfully from the first SATA drive, the one XP is on. I eventually managed to be able to dual boot, by a whole new workaround. I had to reinstall Ultimate Edition but this time, when it got to the end of the partitioning section there was an advanced button. Clicking there i changed the default installation of Grub to the second SATA drive's MBR (sdb). now of course Ubuntu would not start up because Windows drive (sda) does not know its there, so I had to use the Super Grub Disk to forcefully boot sdb. Once in the Linux drive i made a copy of the boot sector and then copied that to the Windows root so that i could use that in NTLDR to boot sdb. Then had to modify my boot.ini to reflect the new choice which then booted Grub on sdb for me which boots Linux. Not the prettiest solution in the world but it works basically invisibly and no need to boot from SuperGrub anymore. I therefore consider this problem CLOSED. Thank you all again for banging the wall with me =)

The strange thing I find about Linux is the vast differences is has on many types of PCs. I installed Mandriva 08 last year and it almost had no problems on my machine but the Spring version gives me display errors where my screen just displays that it cannot shoe this resolution... I had that with the previous Ubuntus to this one....

Yep..and stranger still when you have 2 identical systems, and the same piece of software has a problem with a particular piece of hardware on one, but not the other :? That really tears some people up :lol:
