View Full Version : [kubuntu] Grub is shot

October 30th, 2008, 09:36 AM
Hallo All,

I have an ASUS laptop with dual boot and as XP died, I needed to run a recovery of that. Unfortunately the ASUS recovery CD was more agressive than I expected and, although my Linux and Data partitions were left intact, GRUB was deleted (I imagine) and now I have no option to boot to the Linux partition.

Of course I could re-install Ubuntu and then Grub would be reconstructed, but I was wondering if there is a way to 'reconstruct' Grub and so get my dual boot working again?

I have googled on this but can't find any clear information so am hoping that someone can either point me towards a HOWTO or advise me that it would be better just to re-install Ubuntu.

Any tips would be a great help.
