Okay, I really need some help here. Once again, involving Ubuntu.
I decided to give it another shot. I set up a 100 GB partition on my external hard drive, and I installed Ubuntu to that partiton. Now, the install was fine, but now I'm having some SERIOUS problems.
First off: Windows Vista won't boot anymore.
This is with the drive both plugged in and not.GRUB loading.
error: no such disk
Second: When I try to boot Ubuntu, I get error 17.
I really need help. I don't care about Ubuntu at this point, but I really need to be able to get back on to Vista. Help!
