There is already a launchpad bug on the upstream provider of Ubiquity... it's been there for a couple of years now.

Same here only it was triple boot with win xp and bodhi1.4. No issues installing bodhi 2.0 64 bit.

Grub/ubiquitiy is a mbr "crusher"? Maybe search for a boot on CD (xp, win2000) and repair files system options or something like that, to crushback Grub ?
I let XP boot silently & ask for grub after by boot.ini (have a look here if you're interest)(it's a french link, ,sorry)

Actually i always use manual partitioning.
You see, i had a previous linux installation so i had this windows partition and swap-root-home partitions. The problem arose when i installed the latest bodhi alpha. Everything was ok, there was no installer error or something, it just failed to install grub and i lost my windows boot. I did an sudo update-grub and there was no windows partition. Used parted magic to check boot flags, no luck. Just fired windows cd to do a fixboot and fixmbr but nothing. It was a damaged windows partition. What went wrong? don't know but it was working ok after bodhi installation so maybe.. buntu's installer?
I'll try the RC next.

I have checked the md5sum of bodhi 2.0.1 image, it is correct.
Problem has been solved ! I use "update-grub" fix it. Grub now works! thank you MacLone for this trick, don't know if you are still suffering the same problem now.
