A Different Grub 17 Error
I have a gateway mt6220b and installed mandriva to dual boot with vista
when i rebooted i got the error message grub 1.5 error 17 and can't get past it.
I did a google search and tried all the options.
The dvd drive won't attempt to read the hdd so I created a usb bootable vista which allows me to install vista but when I reboot i get the error message again.
so i tried fixmbr and fixboot - nothing
with gparted I:
formatted the hdd - nothing
removed the partition and left unallocated - nothing
The only thing i can think of is that Grub was installed to the cmos
but i can't find the jumper on the motherboard to clear it.
Can someone help.
The hdd is identified correctly in the bios and and i have set the boot order to dvd then external then external stick.
I have also tried 2 external dvd drives that work in windows on this comp and also boot from my main comp
