Hi folks :)
I just read a 'How to install GRUB from a live Ubuntu CD:'
The steps go like : Open terminal,
sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1
root (hd?,?)
setup (hd0)
quit
Is the step 'setup (hd0)' independent of the value returned by 'find /boot/grub/stage1' ? Or is it that I should use the value returned by 'find /boot/grub/stage1' and the example just assumed that the value derived was hd0? (Sorry for my terrible English-I hope I got the message I am trying to get across,through)

Re: re-installing GRUB

Hi,

Can you post the output for
Code:
find /boot/grub/stage1
Then I can help you know what partition and hdd you are installing it on. Just so that you know (hd0,0) is usually what people put as an example.

Cheers!

Re: re-installing GRUB

Tyvm for responding, sir.
find /boot/grub/stage1 gave the value (hd0,7) so the command lines must now be:
sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1
root (hd0,7)
setup (hd0)
quit
Is that correct sir?

What if the value was (hd1,7)? Would the commands be like:
sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1
root (hd1,7)
setup (hd1)
quit
Or should it have been: setup (hd0) ??
*apologies for bringing up looney questions- I really shouldn't be fiddling with Ubuntu-I barely manage to get things done in Windows :p - I am done with Ubuntu for now, but I would still like to know about the command lines above*
