Question about Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu
I keep getting "Error 17" when trying to boot, what does this mean?
How can i repair this problem?
Thats mean that the grub doest recognize the partition of your linux, because of the change in the partition.
first ( if u dont see any grub loader and automatically boot windows,if u dual boot) u must repair the master boot record for windows first, for xp, use fixmbr or fixboot using setup cd> repair. in vista u have to read the documentation on how to repair the mbr.its pretty confusing in vista
after u've succeded repair the windows mbr, u must repair the linux grub boot loader, read the documentation of it,theres many threads and forums about it.u can use either live cd
OR if u can see the grub loader, type 'e' at the linux boot, and change the partition, eg hd0 or hd3.try from 0 to 3 or any numbers if u have many partition.save the configuration, at the edit option, type 'b' at the linux boot.
if it occurs again,boot like above in grub loader, u have to edit at
sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst. change the partition for linux kernel. ie hd0 or hd1 or hd2 or hd3 etc
you must google it for more info, its hard to explain all here
