Just to chime in, That advice is great 99% of the time, if that doesn't
work, try SuberGrubDisk to rescue grub. A similar thing happened to me a
while ago and I tried that a few times, but still had issues. I don't
think you will need to do this, since my problem was impacted more by
the change to the pata driver setup (my pata drives went from hd* to sd*
and borked my systems a little) but it is a good tool to have for that
rare just in case that the rescue mode doesn't work.
