Fixing lost GRUB after re-install of WinXP
Had a disaster with XP which meant a re-install and lost GRUB. For some reason the Repair Installation on the Suse 10.3 install DVD would not start, so I used my PartedMagic 1.9 disk instead.

You can get it from here -

The latest version is 2.1 and it can be burned to CD or USB.

All I had to do was boot from the CD, and open the terminal, then use the commands from above. This is a laptop with one drive, and Suse is on hda4 (hd0,3)

root@partedmagic ~# grub
grub > root (hd0,3)
grub > setup (hd0)
grub > quit
root@partedmagic ~# reboot

Got an error 22 the first time because I typed (hdo,3) with letter O instead of figure zero!

Just a brief correction: It is /boot/grub/menu.lst not boo.lst. After adjusting this you are welcome to delete this comment. HTH.

You should check the accuracy of your record-keeping system. I've started two threads and received multiple replies from dvacet, bcbc, and snowpine. What else must I do to "unlock the full benefits of your LQ account"?
