In a desperate attempt to play Tomb Raider, I have shrunk the /dev/sda1 with GParted in Maverick Live CD (the same one I used to install) then installed WinXP on it. Unfortunately for reason X, XP simply does not boot.
So again I am in the Live CD, I have deleted the XP partition and am now trying to fix Grub2. In all the tutorials, you need to mount the normal partition. Which is what I am trying to do, but:

sudo mount /dev/sda1
mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
So there in nothing that I can do. Under "Places" I see my 489GB file system but I cannot mount it.

At least I am getting Internet through the Live CD and I always have Knoppix on hand.

Thank you very much!

EDIT: I should tell you that there is a boot flag on the /dev/sda1.

Detached boot flag.
