redo grub

Postby sprint on Tue Nov 20, 2007 4:16 pm

Hello,
Is there a way to reinstal grub if after a dual boot for example XP, had to be reinstalled , and after this the grub from Daryna is gone is this possible like the "redo mbr" feature from PClos ?

Thanks guys,

Sprint

When I installed Mint there didn't appear to be an option to put Grub in root of Mint partition. I have Ubuntu on MBR and Fedora in Ubuntu's menu.lst. In Mint there is no Grub folder under boot. I didn't see anything in the grub guide that I felt comfortable trying. Any suggestions?

If you did not install a boot loader at the time of installation, then there will be no /boot/grub folder. But it should still boot, just add a stanza to your Ubuntu menu.lst file.

Since you have none to copy here's mine, just be sure and change the addresses and make sure the kernel is the right one for yours.
Code: Select all
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=/dev/sda2 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
boot

sprint,

You might want to look at the below referenced thread. There is a lot of good commentary there about grub. Maybe more than you really wanted to know but I think the answer to your question is buried there. :-)

actually fred;

I didn't look at the date on this thread. I was reading some old Howtos and some how ended up here and saw aan unanswered post, even though it was old, I thought I'd answer it because I know when I search for an answer and find nothing but un answered posts it really gets me.

Your right, and I didn't even look at the dates. :-)
