I made the mistake of using my Linux drive to format a new hard drive for my laptop. Now when I try to boot to linux I'm getting an error about the other drive not being there which stops the boot. How do I edit GRUB to remove the drive that's not there(and isn't going to be there)? I downloaded and burned the ISO for the Super GRUB disk but haven't used it yet. Any ideas on this one. Thanks.

Problem solves. I used the Super GRUB disk to edit the GRUB boot menu. I changed the default line from "0" to "1" That made GRUB look to Ubuntu first and boot the correct drive.
