"File not found" usually means that GRUB is installed correctly but there
is a problem with device naming or detection.
Jump to GRUB console (press "c"), locate the root partition ("find /boot/
vmlinuz"), edit the corresponding entry (press "e" and look for the line
with "hd1,1" or "hd1,2" and modify it accordingly) and try to boot
manually from there (press "b" to boot).
