    Move GRUB

    How do I move GRUB to WinXP MBR? Also how would I check on this move? I am
    currently running Ubuntu 9.10.

    Exactly what do you mean by "move GRUB"? Is it already installed somewhere? Is it running OK?

    And just for informative uses...

    A Master Boot Record (MBR) does not "belong" to an operating system.

    It "belongs" to a storage device which uses partition tables.

    It usually contains boot code (Initial Program Loader (IPL) ) which may be system-specific (such as Windows Boot Loader), or one such as GRUB which is more system-agnostic.


    I can guess you want to install GRUB on the MBR of the first hard drive, right?
