Unhappy Grub

Is there any process to recover ubuntu 11.10 system back? Since the grub of ubuntu any how has been corrupted and there appears a black screen notifying the grub error and i am unable to log in back although i tried to recover the system through the ubuntu 11.10 live cd but that doesn't help even i tried to reinstall the grub from the live cd but the grub is not installing any how. Many many thanks in advance.

Yes there is, You will have to boot from the live CD that controls your boot process and re install grub. You will need to know in what partition you have each operating system currently installed and which is the boot partition so you can re install grub there.

Here is a tread about that http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ot-4175417834/

If you have more questions about your boot process being damaged I would suggest you to start a new thread instead of changing subject in this one.

Good luck to you!

Thank you for replying. Though i have tried to install the grub in the specific partition where it was installed before but something which is unknown to me hindered the process and the grub can't successfully installed in that specified partition and as a result i have to freshly installed the OS losing all the data and you will be astonished to know that even the live cd can't mount the ext4 partitions and as a result i can't back-up the needed data from those ext4 partitions. Thanks again.

I expect that if you had posted the command or information on exactly how you tried to do this, the "something unknown" would have been known by a member here and probably resolved your problem. The same applies to your inability to mount the partition from the Live CD. Without knowing what you did, there is no way for anyone to assist you.

this is why you always should put your /home partition on it's own partition.

I tried to mount the filesystem manualy and through disk utility but without the result.It shows errors mounting /dev/sda5 (udisks-error-quark,0 ).I tried running badblocks though it ran smoothly i can't mount the filesystem. Is there any solution to this problem?
