    i am running vista home premium on my other laptop. I also had Kubuntu installed but I wasnt using it much so I went into disk management and deleted the partition kubunu was on.. completely not thinking about the fact that it would mess up the boot..

    so now when I try to boot up it goes from the toshiba screen to
    "GRUB Loading stage1.5.

    GRUB loading, please wait...
    Error 22
    _" thats it i cant get into windows or safe mode or anything... PLEASE HELP i cannot format i need this stuff!!

    update: i found a similar post on another forum and they recommended using a windows disk (i had to use XP because its all i have) and i went into the recovery console (i was going to use fixmbr) and it says "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer"

    AHH!

    well since nobody is even replying.. here's another update.. I used super grub disk and ran the fix windows boot.. so now it says BootMGR missing... and everywhere ive read says that the only way to fix this is to just simply run the repair from the windows dvd.. well I dont have one... the laptop only came with a system restore disk! (and I have no clue where it when DAMNIT!) would running an XP or 98 disk work?
