Angry intel boot agent not letting me log into my fedora 9 or windows 7

hey friends,
help me out!!

I was using dual boot system :fedora 9 and windows 7. Then I though to install fedora 11. As I installed fedora 11 it failed to boot and did not show the dual boot menu even. Instead it showed me that it was booting through mac using the network card. I checked BIOS setting and found that everything is ok and the priority of boot through network is at the lowest. So, its the case of either boot failure in hard disk.
Guys I don't want to loose my windows 7 either. So, I again tried to install a fresh copy of fedora 9 again but again the same problem, I could not boot either on windows or on fedora 9.
I then ran the fedora CD in rescue mode and checked as follows:
it gave +ve result and then
find /boot/grub/grub.conf

it gave me (hd0,9)
then I wrote
setup (hd0,9)
it gave all the things successfully.

But again when I tried to boot it did not help.
Again the same problem.

I have tried ubuntu 9 and fedora 11 too but all in vain.

I am not able to boot inside the linux or inside the windows.
Is there any problem with hard disk
thank you in advance.

Before trying to help , what did anaconda show you about the disk partitioning or gparted
As you know fedora 11 should have boot partition ext3 and the rest is ex4
Grub seems not to be able to boot from ex4
