Hi, 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. 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. Can someone help. ps The drive is identified correctly in the bios
