install grub manually


i have just removed GRUB on my 1st drive, and so linux ( on my 2nd drive) can only load with a bootdisk

how can i uninstall grub, then reinstall grub [manually]? i read some other threads, and installed grub, but comes up with an error message i think was from my previous grub installation on my 1st drv

You said that you removed GRUB on your 1st drive and you are asking for a way to uninstall it? What do you mean by that? How did you remove GRUB from your 1st drive? And what is the error message showed?
