View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub Error 17... Special Situation

May 12th, 2009, 07:29 PM
HI, i have an external Hard Drive (250gb). I installed eeebuntu on it (like ubuntu, just for eee pc, based of 8.10). I had another partition before the one i installed eeebuntu on. Now when i boot from the hard drive the error message "grub error 17" comes up. When i backed up all the data on the hd and deleted the partion and reinstalled ubuntu it works. I need the first partition made (ex. sdb1) to be windows compatible. When i remove eeebuntu and put the partiotion back and install ubuntu after it does not work anymore. Any help to remove error 17 and keep eeebuntu?
Also I have not been able to log in or modify any files. I have access to another windows and linux (xandros) laptop.
