Unhappy New Install of Debian Failed to Load Grub Troubleshoot options


I tried to install debian on my system using a small image at first that would download all the necessary components during the install. It loaded everything except Grub, and wont boot. I need to rescue this as the downloading of all the components took ages and I don't want to do that again. Any help?

My Favorite Tool, Super Grub Disk, will boot your new Debian install and let you install GRUB from there! Try it!

Follow the directions for Debian and you will be up in No Time.
