Please could anyone help and offer advice I am new to all this and do not have a clue so please could you give your answers in basic lingo please. Thank's.
Well, you're getting advice about Grub, because you're posting in Linux forums.
If you've got a Mac, this probably isn't the place to get useful answers. A Mac forum would be better, or calling an Apple store or support line. Since you don't say anything about your hardware or OS, a Google search can probably help you:
