Why does ubuntu 11.04 give an error when booting that "error: load kernel first". then it goes back to the grub loader screen and when ubuntu is launched again, it works fine. this mostly happens when using windows prior to ubuntu.
Error: Load Kernel First on Ubuntu then Grub Loader Page
Grub is a boot loader from GNU. Meaning you can install different operating system in your hard disk and allows you to choose which operating system to load during boot time. That's the job of the boot loader. Grub is just another boot loader. Another popular boot loader is LILO, but I mostly use Grub than Lilo.
First option here is to re-install your grub boot loader.
Another option is to load your ubuntu installation CD/DVD media (or the ubuntu live CD) and try re-installing without affecting your current files. Grub installation is also part of the re-installation process. The purpose here is to make your grub configuration renewed.
