    Question GRUB2 Reinstall ?


    hi, i had xp and fc6 installed, both listed in boot loader.

    but windows had some bug, so i reinstalled xp and now i can't see that GRUB screen at start up...

    i think reinstalling grub2 will work, i have downloaded this file (grub-1.95.tar)
    but there is no documentation for the software... how do i install the software?
    is it possible from windows or do i have to burn the software in a bootable disk ?

    This happens all the time. You can save yourself some trouble next time by searching google first.

    i would suggest you to use Fedora's native GRUB and install it through Fedora Installation CD/DVD only.
    boot up from Fedora Installation CD/DVD and type 'linux rescue' at boot: prompt. hit Enter key. this will drop you at shell prompt after a while.
    execute this
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/hda
    press Ctrl+D two times and machine will Reboot.
    * if your harddisk is SATA, replace hda with sda in grub-install command.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
