    Post Unable to access linux partition in windows


    Hi Guyz,

    Am new to this forum,

    I had a issue and need a solution for that.,

    I have windows machine and installed ubuntu in one of my partition, So i was able to select any of these OS's while booting the machine, But recently I've formatted Windows partition after this am unable to reach this ubuntu. i.e., While booting the machine no options are listing out it directly went to Windows OS.

    Awaiting reply from U !!!

    Thanks in advance,
    ~Imdad

    Windows installer has removed GRUB and you to re-install it. Download SuperGRUB CD, USB or Floppy image and boot up from it. Select Fix Linux Boot Loader (GRUB) option. It will re-install GRUB and Menu will appear on reboot.
    Or
    Try Auto SuperGrubDisk in Windows. Read documentation carefully before re-install GRUB through this method.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Boot up from Ubuntu LiveCD, open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    sudo grub
    You will get a grub prompt, grub>
    Execute this:
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    If you get "Error 15: File not found", try the following:
    Code:
    find /grub/stage1
    Using this information, set the root device (fill in X,Y with whatever the find command returned):
    Code:
    root (hdX,Y)
    setup (hd0)
    quit
    Reboot machine. Grub should be installed and both Ubuntu and Windows should have been automatically detected.
