Default Grub Error 28: Selected item could not fit into memory

On my laptop (HP DV9745el) I've got Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE 4.1 and Windows Vista in dual boot.
Everything has always worked fine; then I edited the kdmrc to select GRUB as a loader, in order to get the "Reboot as..." option in the KDM shutdown menu, rebooted normally (i.e. without using the new menu) and then, after logging in Linux again, chose to reboot to Vista.

When the PC rebooted, the GRUB boot menu came out as ever, and I had to choose the OS I wanted to boot into; so I guess the "Reboot as..." thing isn't working very well... On top of that, now if I select Vista from the GRUB menu, I get the following line:

Error 28: Selected item could not fit into memory
The only thing I can do is to press Enter to return to the boot menu and select Linux.
What can I do to be able to boot into Windows again now?

Ciao,
Pino

I managed to resolve this issue!

I noticed that the only file in /boot with a recent timestamp was /boot/grub/default so I renamed it. On the next boot, selecting Windows from the GRUB boot menu I got "Error 15: File not found" but I was able to boot into Linux nonetheless. From a console it was sufficient to give a "sudo update-grub" to have /boot/grub/default automatically generated and the system booting into Windows again.
