tried it again, but now I entered "sudo grub" instead of just grub
entered the root and setup, and I got this:

grub> root (hd0,5)

grub> setup (hd0)
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
Checking if "/grub/stage1" exists... no

Error 15: File not found

Now I'm stuck again

I've never needed to restore grub. This looks like someone using your same distro that has succeded. http://tipstricks.itmatrix.eu/?p=291 Someone else may have an easier way to do it.

I tried to follow the instructions on the link damgar posted
and here's where I get stuck again

mint@mint ~ $ mkdir /mnt sda6
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt': File exists
mint@mint ~ $ mount /dev/sda6 /mnt/sda6
mount: only root can do that

I didn't continue, cause I'm guessing there's a problem there

Sounds like you started after the fdisk line. Prior to that was
Quote:
sudo su
which will keep you from having to type sudo before every command. Also the command was
Code:
mkdir /mnt/sdaX
not
Code:
##NOT
mkdir /mnt

I think Linux Mint rescue will be like Ubuntus.

Start from live/install cd in rescue mode and chroot to the system and then

#grub-install /dev/sda

or

#sudo grub-install /dev/sda
