I don't see anything there that can help.

Googling for 'grub "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition"' helps, but
admittedly not much :-(

One suggestion is just that the MBR is not correct - which may well be true,
since Windows seems to be messing with it - and just
rerun "grub-install /dev/hda" (or whatever your device name is).
