your only hope

is to switch to the light side, and get rid of vista.

actually, since you do not have the install cd for vista, you have to have a linux installed to have the bootloader actually there.
re-install whatever distro you have and just make your vista the default boot option.

Re: Grub loader error while booting the system

If you go and purchase the windows software (vista) and then just pop it in, when you see the "install" sign look down to the botom left of your screen and you will see "repair" option, click on this and follow the on screen instructions. This will repair (not delete) your system plus you will have the code to activate it should you come unstuck later.
You can reload Linux but depending on which Linux version you had in the first place you might fluff up (damage or delete your files). Linux is good but you will have to know what you are doing, there is a repair option on the Linux disk but it might be complicated for you. Have a go but get the windows disk first so that you can save your files first and then play around with Linux knowing that you have a backup of your files from windows.
good luck. Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.
