boot to your livecd then
mkdir -p /mnt/system
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/system
chroot /mnt/system /bin/bash
from there you can try to install grub again.
I dont think i can do anything else anymore. I reinstalled windows on the same partition as before and deleted the linux partition which is currently nothing (it is waiting to be formatted for the appropriate system).
I would appreciate any ideas you can give me before i install linux again on the unformatted partition.
