GRUB 22 and 21 error when trying to format.
I have a problem with the UBUNTU that was installed in my computer. About a year or 2 ago a friend install Windows XP. He recomemded Ubuntu from Linux and said that when I turn on my computer I will get the option of starting up either XP or UBUNTU. I figured hey that sound great, do that.
Everything worked fine for a while but every time, without fail, that I started UBUNTU it would freeze on me after 20minutes to an hour or working in it. So, I left it alone and only worked with XP. I never got around to have it fixed because no one is ever available to help me with it.
Recently (about 4-5 months now) I had a problem with my XP and I wanted to format my 80gig. Now it gives me a GRUB 22 error or a GRUB 21 error.
I believe he had partitioned a 10 gig and put UBUNTU there so I don't understand why it gives me the GRUB errors on my 80gig I have a second 80gig that I want to put in my computer but that one also gives me a no disk found error.
I really want to have this thing fixed. I don't know much about computers but I get by. I also do not have much cash but have decided on getting one of those barebone computers and just use my 80 gigs but if I can't even format that...
Lotsa help would be mucho appreciated.
Thanks in advance
