Using the Desktop/LiveCD and Overwriting the Windows bootloader
1. Pop in the Live CD, boot from it until you reach the desktop.
2. Open a terminal window or switch to a tty (Ctrl + Alt + F1).
3. Type "sudo grub"
4. Type "root (hd0,6)", or whatever your harddisk + boot partition numbers are (my /boot is at /dev/sda7, which translates to hd0,6 for grub).
5. Type "setup (hd0)", ot whatever your harddisk nr is.
6. Quit grub by typing "quit".
Using the Unofficial "Super Grub Disk"
Note: This method works very well with system with only one Linux... (most probably) if you have more than one Linux Super Grub Disk will restore the first Grub that it will find on your partitions.
- Download Super Grub Disk
- Burn into a cdrom (better) or a floppy
- Boot from it
- Select: your language
- Select: Restore Grub on MBR
- Select: Auto
- You see the message: SGD has done it!
- You're done.
