Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S157 Notebook
I reformatted the hard drive with the Toshiba recovery disk. When I power up now all I get is the following:
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
GRUB loadin, please wait...
Error 17y (the y has 2 dots over it)
Any ideas, Thank you in advance
The grub loader is for linux, what it is telling you is that the file the boot loader is looking for was not found (that would be the case because you just reformated it). grub will also complain and fail to boot if the boot file is located past track 1024 (wich would be the case if you installed a significantly larger hard disk). I think what you need to do is delete all the partitions using windows (or dos)
re partition the drive (that will usualy reload the standard boot loader) and see what happens. if you need to install linux then install it on the first partition.
