    Hi BoNGLOND,

    We need a bit more info. which Linux distribution do you have? does GRUB working fine earlier or is it a fresh install?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    boot up from Installation CD and type 'linux rescue' at boot: prompt.

    execute this
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/hda --recheck
    * if your harddisk is SATA, replace hda with sda.

    in case it doesn't work, boot up in rescue mode again and post the contents of grub.conf file here.
    Code:
    less /boot/grub/grub.conf
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
