Hi every one. Actually I had installed linux mint previously in my system. But when i installed Windows XP over it the grub screen is not visible.

assuming mint is a live cd

boot it

root (hdx,y)
setup (hd0)
if grub not found on cd...error will be command not found
if grub is good message after setup command will be grub embedded....succeeded

x and y depend on where / or /boot is read my signature for more info

but I suspect ms is on 0,0 so it will be 0,1 or 2 etc
