    Major headache with new installatino with multiple hard drives and GRUB Error 17

    Okay so i just installed kubuntu latest release, however i did it with the drive i installed kubuntu on as the not being the master or whatever. Anyways, i switched my drive configuration so i could actually get GRUB to try to start but now it just gives Error 17. I just want to reinstall grub so it fixes this, I am going to give all the bios hard drive posts.
    Also Note: I am using a PCI IDE card that has 1 ide cable connected to it holding 2 drives. I will list this in the post as well.
    Here we go:
    the main bios post shows:
    ide channel 0 Master: WDC WD1200JB-75EVA0 15.05R15
    ide channel 0 Slave : WDC WD2500JB-00GVa0 08.02D08
    Ide Channel 1 Master : HP DVD Writer 640 JS04
    IDe channel 1 slave : none

    Ide channel 2 Master : None
    Ide Channel 2 Slave : None

    After that the PCI IDE card Post shows:
    Ultra 100 Promise PCI Controller:
    D0 Maxtor 6Y120P0 LBA 117246MB Ultra DMA 5
    D1 WDC WD1200JB-00GVC0 LBA 114473MB Ultra DMA 5
    D2 Not Detected
    D3 Not Detected

    IDE Bus Master Enabled

    Finally if i go into bios setup and look at the boot device priority:
    Ch0 M. : WDC WD1200JB-75EVA0
    Ch0 S. : WDC WD2500JB-00GVA0

    Jack, see how you go with one of these:

    Reinstall grub

    Restore messed MBR
