Grub Error 22 after deleting Fedora Partition on Vista Machine
Ok, so here's the thing. I'm a CS Major that wanted to experiment with Linux more. Great idea right?! Well, long story short, I have a HP Dv9815nr Entertainment Notebook PC with Vista pre-installed. I have 2 local SATA HDDs and installed Vista(250GB) and Fedora 12(160GB)(respectively). In order to make life simple for booting purposes, I partitioned the Vista drive to include a 3GB sector for the Fedora Boot partition, so that Grub would run properly.
I recently discovered Sun's VirtualBox (Open Source Virtualization software) and installed several flavors of linux inside of this application on the Vista Disk. Naturally, I installed Fedora 12 in the Virtual Box and reformatted the Linux drive (160GB + 3GB Boot partition).
Everything was fine and then I rebooted. Now I get a Grub error on boot. "Error 22 : partition not found". I would like to restore the Vista MBR using the Fedora 12 Live cd, but I can't repartition the Vista drive under the live installation.
Also, I extended the Vista partition to include the 3GB previously used for the Fedora Boot Sector. Please Help me!
