Ubuntu grub rescue live cd problem

I have a Pentium 4 desktop running on windows 7. Last week I installed Ubuntu along with Windows. (booted from the Ubuntu DVD and Installed. Both operating systems were working fine. Yesterday I booted into windows and while watching Youtube then Mozilla firefox as well as the PC got hanged. I waited almost 15minutes to respond. Then I pressed the Restart button. It restarted but instead of showing the boot menu, it directly showed windows logo and ” windows is starting message”. I waited for half an hour to load. It didn’t boot. I restarted the PC several times but the same thing happened.
I tried the windows recovery disk. I can boot from the DVD but it also shows the splash screen that something loading for 1 hour. There is no change.
I tried to install windows again but the installation stuck at windows is starting screen.
Then I restarted without any DVD in the drive. It says like :
“Veryfying DMI Pool Data……….

Hello; I'm looking for a concise listing of Grub Rescue commands. Any help? In particular, I'd like to know whether there's a command for listing which (hd0) entry corresponds to which partition.

GRUB RESCUE after Ubuntu 10.10 > 11.04 upgrade
location: linux.com - date: September 8, 2011
So to start off I'm a complete Linux newb, and I originally installed Ubuntu 10.10 to learn a little more about it.
I have a laptop and a desktop. Both computers had Ubuntu 10.10 installed on them. On the laptop Ubuntu was installed in a dual boot configuration on a single partitioned hard drive. On my desktop Ubuntu had it's own separate drive. I have 4 other hard drives 1 TB each running in a RAID 10 setup. I upgraded from 10.10 -> 11.04 on my laptop first and it went off without any problem.
When I upgraded 10.10 -> 11.04 on my desktop all hell broke loose. I choose all the same options as the laptop upgrade, but it didn't work out as well, lol. I think the problem originated at the end of the upgrade when it asks you about the boot configuration. I chose the first option which was something like "use the manufacturers boot blah blah". When the computer restarted it went through the POST and I was left at a "grub rescue>" prompt. I messed around with
Unknown File System, GRUB rescue: Win7 & Ubuntu dual boot problem

I need some help after installing my new SSD.
Ill run through my old system and explain what I have changed.
I was originally running:
1 x Intel SSD with Windows 7 boot files
1 x Samsung HDD with all other files (games, music etc)
1 x External HDD for backups.
I decided to buy a new OCZ SSD 6Gb/s yesterday and decided to install windows 7 home premium to the OCZ SSD. Everything went fine and I pointed all the locl files to the Samsung HDD. Windows worked fine. I then whiped the old Intel SSD and installed Ubuntu 12.10. This also worked fine. It was not linked to either of the two drives.
After installing a few things on Ubuntu I went to boot back into my Windows SSD after changing the boot priorities and it still boots automatically into Ubuntu. If i do a boot overide into the OCZ Widows SSD then it loads straight into a command line screen that has:
error: unknown filesystem.
I cannot boot into windows at all and if I try the window

Hello all, I've got an Asus Eee which came with Windows XP. I created a partition (in Windows), then installed Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition using their Windows Installer. When I restarted, I was able to choose which system to boot, and booted Ubuntu. After some time, I needed to restart to update Firefox.
When I did so, I got a screen reading

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7.
I installed Ubuntu 10.07, rebooted few times and all went well.
However, after stating Windows 7 I could no longer get the system to boot.
I saw a post from Colin Watson and he mention that I should render GRUB2 unbootable to see if Win 7 boots;
I don't know how to do that.
I goggled about the subject and there are 1000's of posting; difficult to find what I need since no post match my case.
Last night I tried all things that are on the postings but still just a black screen with same GRUB's error message.
I even installed Ubuntu 10.10 pre-released and no luck.
Most of the commands that are posted on various documentations do not work:
Here is how my system looks like:
