Thread: bootup problem
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
about a month or so ago i installed Gentoo on my comp (even though it wasn't quite the mandrake installer i had been using before, i made it and it was quite nice).
After some time, Windows kinda' crashed because of graphical problems (i dualbooted with lilo before the crash, on separate harddrives).
So i reinstalled windows and found myself rebooting the computer (after the installation) with that neat & cosy XP logo.
Windows XP had taken over my entire MBR.
of course this was kinda pestering because i don't have any "boot-3,5:er".
i want to know if i have to go through that rather long "Gentoo-stage 1" installation again.
also, if you help me with getting into my linux again, what do i have to do to get my lilo back?
P.S. i installed from a live-cd and i've still got it (if you need that info...)

if uve got a live cd boot that into a terminal, mount the / partition linux is installed onto.
chroot into the linux partition.
ok thx, i'll try that
i'll tell you if it worked or if the problem is more complicated than that...
it worked great, now i can go back to ordinary computing again.
