The scenario is this:
I have two SATA disks, first disk (160GB) contains linux and windoze and second (250 GB) is empty.
Disk one is partitioned:
/dev/sda1 Windoze in NTFS
/dev/sda2 /root in ext3
/dev/sda5 /home in ext3
Because i do install windoze after linux i lost my GRUB loader on MBR.
I tried to recover it using a Ubuntu Alternate CD, running the instaled system on sda2 and executing:
it doesn't work and damaged my NTFS partition. I do recover it copying PBR of another disk into sda1, and works fine!
Because i have another Disk i tried to install GRUB in it and BOOT from there, using the same procedure described above.
I tried many times, changing the Filesystem of sdb1, setting the boot flag using FDISK and doesn't work.
At boot shows the word GRUB and hangs.
Thanks, Appreciate any help.
