When you reinstall Windows, if F.U. your partition table layout, renaming even partition numbering (yes windows does that at times.)
Or you you made a type-O.
Have you tried using the find command ?---[ MS09-99896 - Vulnerability in All MS Windows OS ; Using Windows Could Allow Remote Code Execution. ]---

When i did this on SuSE, i jus put the install CD's in, went to manual installation and then in there somewhere there's a boot from hard disk option. select this, and select the / partition to boot from. Then when i'm into linux, i jus goto yast, and reinstall GRUB there we go, everything's sorted. U will need to reboot tho as some services will not startup off the install CD."I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"

boot from the Mandrake 10 install CDs, hit F1 for more options, type "rescue", then once it loads, select reinstall LILO. simple as that.
