I'm new to Ubuntu and dual boot installed with windows 7 no problems. I forgot to move the slider to the desired disk space amount for ubuntu though, and ended up messing with my partitions to try to get more volume for Ubuntu.... I don't know what I've done but when I boot now I get grub error 22 and cant get onto windows or ubuntu!

I need some serious help

Hi. A Grub error code of 22 means Grub is looking for a partition (listed in the partition table) that is no longer there.
A simple way around this would be to reinstall Ubuntu, paying attention to specifying the partition for Ubuntu. This will also reinstall Grub, allowing you to boot into windows 7 or Ubuntu.
This works because Windows 7 is still on the disk, and while installing Ubuntu, the installer will search for any existing operating systems (windows 7) and add them to the Grub boot list.
Hope this helps.
