    Recover Grub


    I removed a partition and my system crashed. Using Windows 7 recovery disk I am back on W7. I lost Linux Mint 12. I burned a copy of SuperGrubDisk. I ran it and LM12 booted OK with the DVD. What do I need to do so the PC will boot to Lunix Mint without the DVD in the DVD player? I would like to recover my dual boot configuration. Thank you

    Provided the Linux partition didn't get over-written, you may be able to re-install GRUB to get back to normal.
    See this page for some info on that.

    Hi jayd512,

    I burned and used the Boot Repair CD and that fixed my problem! I thank you very much. The whole process was "painless".
