This will be the section that is causing you errors.  When grub loads,
it loads from the MBR of your HD and then reads it's files from your
boot partition.  Error 17 is that it can't access it's files.

This groot line is either configured wrong (hd1,4 should be
device /dev/sdb5 or /dev/hdb5 depending on the drivers you use) - check
this is your boot partition.  It could be that your boot partition is on
a RAID device or filesystem (ext4 ?) that grub cannot access.

The Ubuntu default for this option is the UUID of the boot partition -
e.g. groot=b976bc89-3db9-4760-bded-f0added93cb6. To see a list of the
UUIDs for your drives do:
	ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
