OK ! Experts ,i installed ubuntu on my friends laptop with a single hdd partitioned into 3 drives ,the installation worked fine for some reason i tried to reinstall ubuntu again but in the middle of the installation something happened and i restarted the computer ,now i get a screen saying grub error 15 ,and when i boot from a live cd i open gparted i can only see one big partition and the rest are gone ,the good news is that when i insert the vista cd ,it can see the windows partitions ,but cannot boot any of the 2 os ,now the question is how to restore the vista mbr ,i used to use fixmbr under winxp ,but this is not working in vista ,i hope i explained my problem and kindly feedback if any one out there knows how to restore the VISTA mbr ..
