GRUB loading stage 1.5. 
GRUB loading, please wait ...
error 21

i dontot have a recovery disk or a windows install disk, please tell me how to fix the mbr withot the disk.

ps. grub is the Boot Loader Ubuntu uses. it installs pon the windows partition to allow for dual boot i think.

Is vista on the first HDD or the second HDD?? If its on the first HDD you should be able to unplug the second to boot back into Vista.

no, weather the first hardrive is pluged in or not i still get the same error
