Grub 1.5 error 17 dual booting Linux & Vista

January 13, 2010 at 23:31:58
Specs: Vista/Linux, 1gig
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.
The drive is identified correctly in the bios
