Dell Inspiron 1564

dual boot: Backtrack 5r1 and win7homepremium/8

Started innocently enough with me partitioning a drive to make space so I could test win7starter. I reboot to finalize the partition and I get the grub rescue error. I tried the super grub2 disk thing to no effect. I say screw it and decide to start fresh.

I get out my old restore disks for win 7 go through the motions and I still get the grub rescue error.

So then I get parted magic on unetbootin and completely format the lappy's hard drive in a single ntfs drive and I reboot and I still get the grub rescue error.

I am getting a copy of win7 retail to put on BUT I still need to fix the grub issue. Anyone know what to do? Z/Z
