Is there anyway to change this after installing Mint from the Live CD? Even with internet is working in the from the Live CD the chrooted terminal's apt-get does not seem to see the internet connection and thus I can't download the regular Grub.
sudo aptitude download grub
sudo mkdir /mnt/Mint
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/Mint
sudo cp ~/grub.deb /mnt/Mint/home/USERNAME (where USERNAME is your username you made during installation)
sudo chroot /mnt/Mint
sudo aptitude install grub.deb

Commenting out the use of the graphic does not seem to solve the problem ether so it is something in the actual /boot/grub file. I don't know enough about Grub to know which file was causing the problem so I just copied over the whole directory from my previous Gusty installation.
PS. There is also some difference in the Gnome version of Mint the Live CD compared to Gusty as the Mint version requires special parameters to be typed in prior to boot for it to work and this is not the case with Ubuntu 7.10
and if i do how am i suppose to get this? Is it on the Mint Live CD?Copy /boot/grub/ from Gusty installation
