Problem in booting after resizing partition

By rahulgup ·
I have RedHat Linux and Win XP on my machine and was using GRUB to boot either of them. It was working fine with menu to choose the OS to load. I wanted to move some extra space from Linux partition to windows. So I used Partition Magic to free some space on Linux partition and merged it with Windows partition.

Now when I boot, I am taken to the GRUB command prompt. I tried to boot using Linux Intallation CD and also Win XP installation CD, but I always get to that grub command prompt. I don't know what to do from there. Any pointers will be helpful.

is the bios set to boot from cd first or hard drive first?
if the latter that is the problem.

when you altered the partitions in linux you destroyed the linux installation, you will have to re-install linux.
