Hello Ela,

> 'grub error 17'

I googled on this and it turns out that it's an error that occurs often
enough on Ubuntu Linux machines, but it's not Greenstone related. If
there are any Linux technicians or people familiar with Linux machines
working where you are, they may be able to help you. (I had a look
through various forum pages about Ubuntu using the Google search.
Unfortunately, most of it seems rather technical to me, being very
Linux-specific.) Perhaps this page may help:

All the best,
Anupama
