[QUOTE=chovy;4831773]Where do you see that it is installed to /dev/sda1 instead of MBR on /dev/sda?[COLOR="Silver"]
Taking another look I am asking myself the same question. Please ignore the grumpy geezer. May be senility setting in.
~$ sudo fdisk /dev/sda
[sudo] password for a:
Command (m for help): t
Partition number (1-12): 1
Hex code (type L to list codes): 83
Changed system type of partition 1 to 83 (Linux)
Command (m for help): w
Ok, this appeared to wipe out my harddrive, how do I change it back?
How to I get back into live-cd where I can see my mounted harddrive again?
If you've retried running grub-install /dev/sda from the live CD without success, you might want to try the following:
1. Boot off the live CD
2. chroot to your Debian partition
3. run grub-install /dev/sda
How do I do this? I'm a complete newb, which menu item in 1) and also how do I chroot in 2).
