View Full Version : [ubuntu] I need to get Grub back

January 8th, 2009, 05:18 AM
After years of just using Ubuntu, I decided to partition my hard drive and install Vista. On Vista I tried EasyBCD but it isn't working for me. I would really just like to get Grub back like how it was before, and use Grub to decide which OS to boot into.

How do I get it back? I hate that it directly boots into Vista everytime I start up my laptop.

to restore Grub to your MBR, so if you boot your Live CD, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and do:

sudo grub
grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> quit

And that's all it should take.
