    Post Debian recovery


    Hello guy's

    i have 2 operating systems, windows XP and Debian 5.5. i have a problem with Windows Xp & seems like it has to be reinstalled. Now, after i reinstall windows xp, how do i recovery Debian OS just by installing boot loader only. i do not know the steps to start. please let me know how to recover Debian without reinstalling it again?

    Thanks in advance !

    You'll need to restore the GRUB bootloader to your MBR after WinXP has been reinstalled. The SuperGRUB liveCD should be able to do that for you:
