I had a problem with the display card of my hp pavilion 9000 notebook. So i had to get my motherboard changed. I got the motherboard exchanged. Now during booting, its not detecting the OS. But my hard drive was untouched and it had windows xp sp3 and ubuntu 8.04 installed on it. So i wanted to know how to detect windows. windows has 2 partitions C:(OS) and D: drives. i could detect D: drive from a live Ubuntu CD but not C:. i dont know if i should reload the grub and i dont know how to. please it is important. i have a lot of important data in C drive. Please help.....

Is the new Mobo identical to the old Mobo? Is the D: Partiton the Ubuntu install?
XP Repair Install will not destroy any data.

You might want to check the Ubuntu forums also.
