I do think you will need the Fedora disk to do this, there is a link you may want to try http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...ws_AFTER_Linux If you happen to have any issues, do not hesitate and contact the LQ community. Good luck and hope this helps!

Hi Buddy,

put the FC CD in the CD Drive. Set CDROM as a first boot device then you will get linux boot propmt. in the prompt type

step 1

# liunx rescue

system will boot in to linux single user mode. then you will get # prompt.

Step 2

before that ncursers window it will ask you to mount the existing linux partation. if you chosen "YES" you don't want to execute the Step 2 command.

#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

Step 3

chroot /mnt

finaly type

#grub-install /dev/sda

i think this will resolve your problem

Thanks
saravanan
