Windows 7: GRUB loading Error 22

06 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home 64bit
GRUB loading Error 22

Hi all,

I've spent the last several hours reading several helpful topics on this forum, and am hoping this can become one of them! Here's a bit of my situation...

I have a Dell XPS 430 that came with Windows Vista and a Windows 7 upgrade disk. I set up my main hairddrive with Windows 7 on one partition, Linux on another partition, and a third partition for storage. I recently needed more space for Windows, and no longer needed Linux, so using the Windows 7 disk manager I deleted the Linux partition and extended the Win partition using the newly unallocated space.

Upon restarting my machine, I am no longer able to boot into windows, but instead am presented with the message:

GRUB Loading, please wait...
Error 22

I have a Windows 7 disk that I am using to access the repair utility, which I have run countless times. I have tried severel of the tutorials to rebuild BCD and FixMBR, etc etc. Frankly I am getting lost in all the commands and not even sure what does what anymore!

Help please???
