Trying to repair GRUB after Windows installation
Here is my situation. I had a working dual boot setup. Windows 7 was installed first following by Ubuntu 13.04. Everything was working fine until I had to use the Windows 7 installation disc to perform an upgrade. This of course over-wrote my MBR thereby removing Grub. Searching with google I found a number of solutions none of which work because for some reason when I boot with a live USB stick and run:
sudo fdisk -l
I don't see my partitions. If I start GParted it hangs with the message "Scanning all devices". It doesn't seem to be able to find my partitions.
If possible I would like to refrain from re-installing Ubuntu. Does anyone have any ideas?
