Grub loading stage 1.5.,Grub loading please wait,Then it say Error-18

Because Grub has to fit in a small space on the disk, there is no room for helpful error messages, but 'Error 18' translates as 'Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS'. In other words, your BIOS - which initializes hardware - is unable to handle a hard drive this large. Windows is able to boot because the Windows partition is at the start of the distro's disk, within the area handled by the BIOS. This is not a limitation of Linux, which hasn't even started to load, but your hardware. You would see the same problem if you tried to install two versions of Windows, say 98 and XP. There are a few ways to deal with this.

When I turn on my laptop I get a GRUB loading , please wait ... Error 22 What can I do ?

GRUB is the boot loader, it's corrupted. It can't be fixed without special disks so in your case the easiest way is to reinstall.
