I would like to recover my old GRUB menu after installing Windows 7. I had Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04 options, but after reinstalling Windows, it has disappeared.
I've spent the past hour with googling, and found a lot of info about how to restore GRUB after a Windows reinstall, but due to my Linux knowledge (been using Ubuntu 9.04 for 9 days) I'm not sure what to do, and I would like to ask for help here.
I have 4 partitions, Ubuntu is on thw 4th (hd0,3), Windows 7 is on the primary one (hd0,0 = C: ). I installed Ubuntu after Windows, and everything was fine, but today Windows crashed and I had to reinstall it, and it has deleted GRUB.
I tried EasyBCD, created a NeoGRUB bootloader, it said the menu file is on C:\NST\menu.lst . I have my menu.lst backed up, I overwrote it with the old one, but it doesn't work. After selecting NeoGRUB from the boot menu, I see my old boot menu, but Linux doesn't boot. Tried adding Linux aswell with both options ('GRUB isn't installed on the bootsector' ticked and unticked), but it just doesn't work. The sites say it's really simple and all, but I just can't get it working and it's starting to **** me off, since I'm not a noob otherwise, I just dno Linux (yet).
I would really appreciate any help, thank you.
