GRUB: 'Error 17'
I dual-booted Ubuntu with my Windows XP installation yesterday, following the instructions at this page:
However, I had installed a bootscreen to XP. This created two entries in my boot.ini file.
As such, the GRUB installation, instead of creating a direct entry to XP, created an entry to the XP loader.
I booted into Ubuntu and messed around with it.
I then rebooted into XP.
Today, I installed several drivers in XP in hope to be able to read my ext3 Ubuntu partition, but to no avail. I didn't make much of this, and hard-rebooted (it doesn't matter why) to try to enter the Ubuntu installation.
However, it booted into a screen that said:
This rendered my computer unbootable. (I am writing this from my Ubuntu live CD.)
GRUB loading: stage1.5
Is there any way to fix this, or to bypass GRUB and boot directly from the first partition, with the XP loader?
(I do have a partitioning utility available, and I can burn CDs and make floppy disks (ha.))
