I don't know what exactly happened but today when I rebooted I got a command line looking screen telling me "cannot find device (bunch of numbers and letters)" and wont load grub, and I cant seem to get a live cd to work either. I hooked up another HDD that had an old windows installation and thats how im on here now, but I need my mint! PLEASE HELP!

How many hard drives did you have in the computer?

I have 4 installed. I solved this though.. probably not in a technically sound fashion but its solved all the same. I simply made a small partition on the old drive i hooked up with windows, installed ubuntu on that drive which installed a new grub bootloader on dev/sda, and it found all operating systems on all drives and things are fixed. Thank you though!
