ok so u say that i install ubuntu again in the same partition where it is currently installed. I hope it solves my problem. Hope it recognises all other OSes i.e. C drives win7 & D's XP.

If you are still trying to add XP partitions which might have been blocked from correct Boot Menu config by the GRUB, try EasyBCD 2.0 beta which is automated. Attachment 43500

Add the XP partitions on the Add/Remove tab. It will prompt to add boot files which you should accept.

There is also an Ubuntu tab in the Add/Remove tab but I'm not sure how it works.

Now this my disk management screen shot. the 15GB partition is the Ubuntu. and the other two are unsued one's of a few MB's. Don't know what are they for. And now m trying to install ubuntu again in the 15 GB partition as suggested by @coolness.

I posted this as any of the members can get some idea and give some another suggestions if possible. Otherwise the last resort is to replace the ubuntu again.

And ya, Merry Christmas guys.... Enjoy.... And thank u all those who have helped me..... Waiting for some finaly inputs from u guys....

@gregrocker. Thank u dear friend. EasyBCD 2.0 beta did the thing. I got my D drives winXP back. The earlier stable version of EasyBCD didn't do this automatically. I was just thinking of reinstalling ubuntu to get my all entries back. But before that i tried this new beta version and it did it. However, i haven't tried to add Ubuntu,but i think it'll do it. And even if it doesn't, i don't care 4 it.

And my thanks to @coolness & @tews too. I owe a treat to all of u. Thanks 4 the inputs.

May I suggest you create a Win7 backup image (stored externally) before attempting to add Ubuntu using EasyBCD as I have no idea how it will work.

Then you have an easy path back to the working Multi-boot you have now. In fact, keeping a Backup Image of your ideal installation means you never have to reinstall again and have the ability to recover in 15 minutes.
