I upgraded a 5.10 system to 7.10 by doing a new install. Prior to the 
install it was working fine I it was not broke...

After the install completed the initial boot resulted in an error 
reported by GRUB.

This is what gets displayed:

Booting from local disk

GRUB Loading Stage 1.5.

GRUB Loading please wait...
Error 17

HELP, please help...

I am using a laptop that I put 6.06 on recently, and it is my ONLY 
choice. So please pardon any and all mistakes in composition and protocol.
