I have just installed 10.10 beside window 7 and have lost grub even tho i installed ubuntu last.

I have seen you can get grub back using a live cd but it is not working for me.

I am using the live cd as ubuntu@ubuntu
I had to install grub on the live cd using sudo apt-get grub

inside grub i am getting the following:


grub> find /boot/grub/stage1

Error 15: File not found

grub>




Can anyone help?

Thanks

the command you ran is for the old grub setup.

Please type this in the terminal and post the results.

sudo fdisk -ls

that is the lower case letter L and the lower case letter S
