You can install Grub again using this tutorial: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/245
Please choose to install it on /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda2: then its bootsector will be put into MBR.
It seems however that you're having a /boot partition. That will make it slightly more complicated. You'll have to mount /boot instead of /, and use --boot-directory instead of --root-directory when doing grub-install.
