GRUB Loader "Error 22"


I know some might go there is a thread already on this, and yes I have read instructions clearly, however this is my case, removed Linux & Grub Loader, deleted logical partition, resized primary partition back to original state, of course using GParted. However my troubles began when I tried to load Windows XP, I kept getting "Grub Loader Starting...Error 22" I got my trusty Windows XP Home Edition boot disk, changed settings in the BIOS to read DVD-ROM first. Of course it loaded and I went through and repaired Windows, restarted the computer as it told me to, before the CD could even Load I got "GRUB Loader Starting...Error 22" I have restarted the computer, but i'm afraid I will lose everything, and got back into the Windows Setup, and i'm guessing my only option would be to reinstall from scratch, if anybody which will take hours to reinstall, mainly drivers, and applications. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

PS I don't have a floppy drive, but I do have USB!!
