Windows 7: GRUB after POST screen

GRUB after POST screen

I swapped ram from my machine, which is running vista, and has Ubuntu, into another machine running Windows 7.

After swapping, the Windows 7 machine will post, but right after, goes to a black screen with "GRUB" displayed.

Even after swapping the original ram back, it still displays GRUB, and wont boot.

What could have caused this and how can I fix it?

Thanks

I cant even get the machine to boot, so I believe the BCDEDIT is out of question.

Why did this GRUB start showing up after swapping the ram?

Thanks.

Managed to find a windows 7 Install cd. Ran the repair, went to console, did bootsect /nt60 c: /mbr, and it still shows GRUB, and wont load.

This is way beyond FUBAR.

Thanks

EDIT: Also ran the integrated repair, and said it cannot save the repair to the boot sector.

Don't see how this is even possible with just swappinf RAM as it is volatile memory and is erased when power is removed...

Something else is going on here.

You didn;t happen to swap that Vista HDD in there...even for an instakt at any time did you ?
