    [SOLVED] Grub loading, please wait... ERROR 17

    Guys, did you ever experienced this error on your Dual Boot Machine..?
    Please help naman...! Eto ngayon problem ko..! Naka Live CD lang ako ngayon and I could access all my partitions heRe..!

    Details: When I start my PC, it stocks with this error

    Grub loading, please wait...
    ERROR 17


    The last thing I remember is nag-install ako ng Vbox sa XP and napagana ko yung Ubuntu being the Guest OS....Eto kaya ang reason bakit nasira ang Grub ko..!

    Re: Grub loading, please wait... ERROR 17

    I think 'error 17' indicates GRUB can't identify the partition type. Check
    http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...roubleshooting
    for more details. Here is the relevant entry:
    "17 : Cannot mount selected partition
    This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB."

    Could be this? My problem is i'm not really sure I understand what you're writing, hehe.

    Thanks men for the reply...!

    Anyway, since I'm still on Dual Boot, one of my friends suggest to do "fixmbr" on Recovery Console...I did it and my XP already worked..!

    My problem now is How To Restore the option where I choose which OS I want to use when I start my PC (i.e. the Ubuntu or XP)...

    What do I do now..! Please help..! I don't want to loose from Ubuntu..!

    Thanks in advance..!

    siR loell, i've been from the link that you gave..! I tried the "Quick Start" but I could not specify it...! Hindi ko masyadong kabisado..! Hirap talaga ako...! I also tried Using the Unofficial "Super Grub Disk" (Auto Super Grub Disk, As a standalone cd, and UNetbootin Super Grub Disk Loader) but it always says ERROR 15: File Not Found.

    Can you walk me through for an alternative way...? Or pwede ko ring e-format muna yung partition ng Ubuntu and then install again.I have here an official CD from shipit..Please give me advice...!

    Thanks....
