Which Linux Version are you using.. and i think if you create / write grub.conf by your own that would resolve soemtimes but you should know what entry you should write there or can take example from the same running version of linux system.

If you use Fedora ,
Code:
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/hda
exit
reboot
This should do.
Post fdisk -l
