Awww BOLLOCKS!

How's this for a bright spark move?

Thought I was extremely clever getting Vista and Ubuntu 7.10 to dual boot, using GRUB. It all worked and life was good.

Then, found myself needing a little extra hard drive space (had made the Ubuntu partition 15 gigs - overkill in hindsight). So, not really having used Ubuntu that much - still trapped in a very Gatesy world - I used Vista's partition manager to delete the Ubunutu partition. Resize. Magic! 15 extra gigs available.

Until I rebooted...

GRUB ERROR 22.

Bright spark just went and deleted the master boot record for the thing that allowed me to choose my OS.

Bollocks.

Sweet bollocks.
