Help Me!! Grub loading error 22 into weird BIOS problem


PLEASE HELP ME FAST

ok here is my problem i dual booted windows 7(with out a disk) and ubuntu(with a disk) and then every time I boot it says the error in the title so then i tried something but i think i screwed it up even more. now when ever i boot it comes up with an lots of text that keep repeating the lines included PXE-E61:media test failure, check cable and PXE-M0F:existing PXE ROM

I have looked at other forums but non of them have worked just yet

I think this might be because I have no idea what im doing

I have no past experience with terminal please if its not to much trouble help me!

i think PXE is network boot

if so it will be easy to fix if not well ...

type all these in sequence and dont worry about any errors you see on screen
Code:
sudo su
mount /dev/hda1
mount /dev/hda2
mount /dev/hda3
mount /dev/hdb1
cd /media
ls

2) you need to know how to get into your bios...motherboard manual may help

hit the delete key works for me. but I do not have your errors.

I would advise that boot order should not include any lan connection...stick to local media cdrom/harddrive...harddrive includes usbdrives
