GRUB Re-Install (Heeeellllppp !!!)

Asked by Xcript on 2008-01-19

I have installed Ubuntu 7.10 (gusty gibson) beside my old WinXP. I used most of my harddrisk partitions and remain 3GB. Then I tried to install other free (but premature) open source operating system, the ReactOS, in the remaining partition space. When installion finished, it tried to create a new boot loader, but "failed". Then, I restart my computer and remove the ReactOS CD. Aftermath, the computer display : "Error 22". I think that the failed ReactOS installion have been broken the Ubuntu Grub. So how can i re-install the Grub? Are there any solutions for me? Thank you very much.... May the force be with you :-)

Hello

Welcome to the wonderful world of dual booting :) Unfortunately this happens to all of us from time to time. Why I just did the same thing last week! There is a tool called Super Grub Disk that will restore Grub in almost any situation. Be sure to read the prompts carefully when using it and NEVER use after midnight ;) SGD can be found at http://supergrub.forjamari.linex.org/

And also with you :)

Hi Matt

Thank you for your answers and suggestions. It's helpfull. I have donwloaded the SGD, and then i have tried to restore my GRUB, but it doesn''t work. The error messages usually appear when i try it. Any suggestion for me? I'm newbie in Linux :-)

Thank you...

Hi, try this guide - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - it's about recovering grub after windows installation, but it doesn't matter - it's analogical situation... The best way (from my point of view) is to use Ubuntu LiveCD.

Can you help with this problem?
