    OK - we are getting there -

    I wonder, has the USB been automounted by kubuntu? Ubuntu is getting much too user friendly these days!

    Can you see the drive (\dev\sdg1) in the file manager or on the desktop - i'd better fire up a linux on my old PC to see what's going on -

    Then try from here:


    1. Type grub-install --force --no-floppy --root-directory=/media/MULTIBOOT /dev/sdx (to install Grub2)
    2. Type cd /media/MULTIBOOT/boot/grub (to change directory)
    3. Type wget pendrivelinux.com/downloads/multibootlinux/grub.cfg(to get the grub.cfg file)

    Depends how brave you feel! Safety says check if you can boot from the USB then reboot to the CD again and copy over your windows install iso to the root directory of the USB then edit the grub.cfg file to boot from the iso

    there's a problem... i have ejected and then replugged usb and it can't be recognized by file manager. terminal fdisk can still see it. grub is not on usb but on the multiboot folder in media.

    ok just check with fdisk -l again /dev/sdg

    reminder to oneself: remember this is linux / not \ !

    just do

    grub-install /dev/sdg
