k I've made a grub bootdisk for you, download it at
then use dd to write it, ie
dd if=grubdisk.img of=/dev/fd0
or alternatively you can use something like winimage (www.winimage.com
) for windows
then boot with it, after u get the grub prompt first do:
if you linux(or your /boot partition if its separate) is installed in first hdd first partition, (hd0,1) for first hdd second partition, so on and so forth. It'll also tell you the partition type, so if it says ext3/reiserfs whatever you use for your linux partition then you got it right.
after thats done do a:
This will install grub back into MBR
If you use (hd0,0) it instead will install grub into bootsector of first patition of first hdd, useful if u want to use other bootmanagers in MBR.
Lastly you can either type reboot or you can try booting your linux now, use:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-<kernel version>
initrd /boot/initrd-<kernel version>.img
then type "boot"
note you can use tab for auto filename completion, and initrd is used in redhat but not in some other distros.
