I had windows 7 preinstalled.
Then I created 10GB space for ubuntu-9.04.
Somebody tried to restore windows 7 completely on my laptop.
As a result
Now following error occurs
cannot load grub stage 1.5
When I try to boot with ubuntu 10.04 live cd . Screen goes blank after I select 'try without installing'
So I tried 'mandriva 2009 live cd' Then it said 'vesa could not find suitable driver' & then 'xserver is disabled'
I press ctrl+alt+f1 to get virtual terminal & login as root
fdisk -l shows
three partitions of 15GB (recovery),100MB (boot manager) ,284GB (windows 7 partition) respectively. The same configuration I had before installing ubuntu.
All are NTFS .
#mount /dev/sda1 /1
/dev/sda1 on /1 type ntfs (rw)
#grub-install --root-directory=/1 /dev/sda
mkdir:cannot create directory '/1/boot/grub' : read-only file system
hoping that this will copy grub files to mount-point & install grub in MBR.
I am using
core 2 duo
1.8GHz , 3 GB DDR3 RAM
