GRUB reinstall

Asked by Mihai Tambur on 2007-11-18

I have 2 OS on my system Kiwi linux and Windows, after reinstalling windows it erased my bootloader from MBR I tried ti install the bootloader to my linux partition it worked well until I start windows and it makes its partition active and the bootloader dose not show again, I've tried to install grub on (hd0,0) it installed itself normally, but destroyed the ntfs filesystem on my windows partition(it is my first partition on the hard disk).

The question is: How can I install GRUB on MBR? Can someone help me please?

to install in the mbr use
setup (hd0)
not setup (hd0,0)
as the last step in the grub install
so root (hd0,X) where X is where your /boot dir is, but setup on the disk as a whole
