what is the exact error .
and how much space did you make available by repartitioning the drive by shrinking the windows partition .

Hi,

Actually what i did that ..when first time i installed the F9 on my hard disk i used the 20gb space .. that time evrything was ok but .. i has to compile the driver module and i installed the Kernel .. and i removed the old kernelthat was already installed ..
and then when i restart my system it didn't ask me for the login in fedora and only windows was there...
and from windows i format that 20 Gb space...
but i was not aware with that the grub is still there ... and its not removed ..
so i tried from window recovery..
fixboot
fixmbr..
after wards everything is fine..

i know that i was stupid .. but i m new in linux..
thanks...

Regards
Shraddha
