Restoring GRUB boot loader
I have tried to repair my GRUB installation using a live cd (Windows has eaten it!!) but I could not make it works. I needed to install Windows in my box and as everybody knows Windows replaces any existent loader by its own. To resolve this I decided to boot with my live cd and get used of the chroot command (chroot /dev/hda - that's my Red Hat partition) and finally run grub-install /dev/hda to install GRUB in the MBR again. These steps didn't work because there were not any device file in the /dev filesystem.
Is there any other way of getting GRUB recovered? Why there isn't any device under /dev after running chroot?
Thanks a lot!!
/dev/hda is the hard disk only; you need to add the partition number, such as /dev/hda2 (or whatever the partitiion is for you Linux partition).
I do not like grub-install...it does not give correct feedback.
when you boot that live cd again try
when grub is issued...and your live cd has no grub error will be command not found
at end of setup....you should see a message about embedding grub and the word succeeded.
