I suggest you boot from an install cd or live cd. Error 15 means it hasn't found the kernel, or the initrd, the other messages should tell you. info grub, while not being your friend, actually has hidden in there most of the information you will need. Unfortunately , it's hidden among a lot of verbiage you won't need. Persevere, or get more speciic and post fdisk -l output, the location of grub/, the kernel, and so forth.
