LILO and Grub "Geome" error on HP Pavilion
Hi everyone. I'm having some problems. I have a HP PAvilion, with an 80gb HD, Nivida Geforce card, 512 mb of ram, and a 2.08 ghz (XP-enhanced) processor. I tried to install Mandrake but kept getting "Geome Errors": when I attempted to boot it again. LILO just says "L" when I attmempt to boot, and GRUB says "GRUB" unless I boot it form afloppy, then it says "GRUB: Geome error". I'm on my girlfriend's computer, and I need some help. I tried to reinstall windows, as my MBR was ruined after that, and I couldn't restore it (I tried the rescue-disk's options). However the Restore disks aren't working. The yisntall windows, but when I try to restart my computer, or let windows start again, it just freezes. What I would like to do is isntall Linux, and convince family to use it. If not, use it to format hard drive, and then re-install windows. Thanks.
