    Error 17


    hey i have a acer aspire one zg5 and will not boot. well starts to boot but just comes up error 17. i can only find info on 'grub error 17' all i get is error 17 on a black screen.... the only thing that i can do is press ctr,alt,del. to start the reboot then same thing over again. I can get into the bios menu and i can get boot menu. i dont have recovery cd (DOH) and cant find a download for it. can anyone help?
    and alt F10 doesn't work either. just to make it a bit more complicated

    Kind regards Allan

    Hi and Welcome !

    Which Linux distro are you using? Do you have LiveCD of any Linux distro?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Download PartedMagic LiveCD or USB, boot up from it. Post the output of fdisk -l command here.
