Grub help (Solved)

Postby Chipshotz on Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:00 pm

Help pls
I have a triple boot system: LMDE, Win 7 and an old version of Ubuntu.

Grub is installed on the Ubuntu partition so when updating the kernel I must boot Ubuntu to update Grub.

I'd like to move Grub to the LMDE partition. Would this be done with the Live cd or is there another way?

Simple enough. Just boot into LMDE and run:
Code: Select all
sudo grub-install /dev/sdX
Where X is the drive letter (like sda adb sdc, etc)

Well, that was easy. Ubuntu is on a different drive and I wasn't sure how that would work.

Thanks for the help.
