Unhappy URGENT Help with Grub Install stage 1 error

I have win XP and Fedora on my system. I deleted one of my drive partition in windows. after that i tried to install Java Desktop System but that for some reason failed. after that i tried to boot from GRUB, it failed.

I tried to install GRUB using the standard method but it says that "error reading Stage 1". Tell me what to do.

Please help
