I have 2 hard-discs on my computer. On the first one I installed Windows 7 with Linux (Ubuntu)- with different partitions.

At the beginning at booting I had the option to choose Linux/Windows.

But now, I have a problem with GRUB. When booting, I have this screen.
I managed to load Linux with command-line, that loads the kernel manually.

It seems that I have a problem with the grub.cfg file.

What is the best way to fix grub.cfg? So that when booting I will have the option to choose Linux/Windows 7 as before.
