Problem is that After re-installing Windows7, When the laptop was rebooted, Grub Error 17 Message appeared.

Solution :

Boot from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or other linux versions

Start Ubuntu Without installetion

  • For GRUB

Get in to the Terminal, and run

1. sudo grub

2. find /boot/grub/stage1

Now it will be returning something as (hdX,Y), [e.g (hd0,0)]

3. sudo root(hdX,Y)

4. sudo setup(hdX)

reboot the laptop and boot normal, (do not foget to remove the Live CD)

problem was solved.

I hope this help someone out there.

  • For GRUB2

Go to Terminal and do the following:

Mount the partition containing the ubuntu installation.

1. sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt

Run the grub-install command as described below

2. sudo grub-install -root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sdX

Exit the Terminal

reboot the laptop and boot normal, (do not foget to remove the Live CD)

problem was solved.
