Problem in Linux boot
I have laptop with windows vista. and i had installed linux on my external HDD with 500GB sucessfully and its working fine also. but when I am removeing my external drive then my Vista is not getting boot and it show only GRUB. so I had repaired my MBR with my vista bootable CD. Now I am not able to boot Linux through my external HDD. My laptop is Dell Studio.

Hi and Welcome !
Which Linux distro did you install? Does your machine's BIOS supports booting up from External Device?
You have to re-install GRUB in MBR of External Hard disk. You can use SuperGRUB CD for that.
Re-install Linux. Disable internal Harddisk in BIOS before starting installation. Linux installer will install GRUB in External disk instead of Internal disk.
