    I am unable to reinstall grub using those mentioned command.
    It says "Access denied". Even though i was logged in as root.
    Grub stuck saying error no 17.

    Use a windows XP disk, boot and enter recovery console. Now type Fixmbr and hit enter and reboot to enter windows. Now again attempt a linux installation :)
