THANKS this worked for me! I changed the grub parameter from being erroneous set to (hd0,3) to (hd0,0) in the grub boot parameters.

I installed ubuntu gutsy 7.10 on my conputer wich has vista preinstalled. The installation from live cd went fine, but after re boot the boot stalled and pressing ctrl+F1 showed the issue "ata2.00: failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40)". So at first I thought the Sata controller being the issue, since I run a JMicron JMB361 controller, and tried different boot tips. What helped was to change the grub root only!

Thanks again
