I found this on the web.

It claims that error 15 is a lack of a file. The only file that GRUB 
should care about is the kernel (since it already found stage 1.5). So I 
would use a live CD to check for a valid kernel where the GRUB line 
leads you.

Also, can you bring up the boot menu? If you can't you might not have a 
valid menu.lst file in /boot/grub/.

The other thing that is possible, I know some bioses can be picky about 
allowing access to large disks, if you have the option, place the new 
partition at the same physical spot on the disk as the one you deleted 
or nearer the beginning of the drive. I am not certain if GRUB is 
effected by this like I believe LILO was, but it's something to try.
