Ok, I'm assuming you specified the right partition :)

It looks to me as though you have grub installed in the boot sector of
your windows partition. I believe you can fix this by booting using your
windows boot disk and running something like "fdisk /mbr".

I don't have windows machine around to check, so be sure to run
"fdisk /?" first to get a listing of the possible options.

After you've done this, you will probably have to reinstall grub to the
disk's boot sector. You might have to be careful about where Fedora
wants to put grub though.

Good luck,

Ed.
