I don't have the first idea what Grub is! But out of interest I browsed a few websites and came across this: click here

Any help?

I have used the repair feature on the Vista disk and it does say that the boot loader is either corrupt or missing. I have tried Fixmbr but its not working. Im at a loss!!

I have done several reboots trying different things, and on the last reboot I managed to start up Vista using the Vista disk, so I tried it again but it didnt work! Somebody please tell me whats going on?
