get Grub bootloader back on usb stick


Hi folks,

Here is my first question on this forum, althoug I thought, I had already posted a question, but the records indicate I didn't .

My question is: How do I get my Grub bootloader back on the usb stick I used to boot Ubuntu 16.04 from.
One of my kids needed a usb stick and used the one I use to boot my OS, so I can't access my Ubuntu partition.

You can download the SuperGrubDisk from here: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/ and have a look at: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wizard-...-usb-pendrive/
This will let you start a system installed on your hard drive, and then, you can fix GRUB installed on your hard drive.
