Hello Experts!

My PC has got one HDD.
I have Win7 on NTFS partition and Ubuntu on Ext4 partition.
Before my changes I had multiboot capability provided by Grub.

But I need to have both partitions encrypted.

So I used TrueCrypt.

Because Grub was installed on my MBR I needed to move it to my Linux partition.

So I used:

>mount

it told me that my linux is here: /dev/sda5. So I typed:

>sudo grub-install /dev/sda5

Then I encrypted my Windows partition.

After rebooting I get TrueCrypt bootloader, I type my password and my Windows boots up.
Nice.

TrueCrypt bootloader also alows me to press Esc and select second partition.

I get:

grub>

what should I type here to start my ubuntu?

Thank you!
