Reinstalling GRUB: Need help please.
I have Mandriva installed on some partitions and then I installed Windows 7 on another partition and have been using Win7 ever since. Now I need to access some files I left back on my Mandriva desktop so I need to reinstall GRUB so I can boot it up, or I need to get those partitions to mount under a live-CD.
Reinstalling GRUB sounds so simple but from a live-CD I can't seem to get linux to recognize that there's a hard drive present. Trying to mount the drive doesn't work either. It's as if the SDA block device isn't present as far as I can tell.
Any suggestions? I downloaded the Mepis live-CD iso. That's the disk I'm currently using. Is there another flavor of linux live-CD that would work better for this?
