    Unhappy Cannot boot linux after re-installed windows !


    Hi all,

    In my system there was 2 OS - Windows and Linux. Once when some virus is found is the Windows partition, I just formatted and re-installed Windows.

    But then, I can't boot into LINUX. It just booting to Windows only. Is there any ways to have a selection for Windows/Linux when I boot into system? Or should I re-install LINUX ?

    Please give me a reply.

    Best regards,
    Nissar

    Windows installer will always over-write GRUB. Burn a copy of SuperGrubCD to re-install GRUB.

    I see 7 iso files. Should I write into 7 CDs and install ?

    No, those 7 ISOs are 7 different versions of the same thing. Just choose 1, probably the latest one (the one with the highest version number) and burn it. Be sure to burn it as an image, though.
