    problem in fixing grub after windows reinstall

    Hello All..

    Mr Underscore ..

    i read ur thread ::
    ==========================================
    sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2

    We should probably make sure the grub boot menu.lst file exists.
    ls -l /mnt/hda2/boot/grub/menu.lst

    You will chroot into the /mnt/hda2.
    sudo chroot /mnt/hda2/ /bin/bash

    If that is successful then then run grub-install & apply grub to the MBR.
    grub-installer /dev/hda

    If that is successful, type exit:
    exit
    ==========================================
    when i tried to mount is stated that the mount point is busy..
    when i typed the "ls" command it showed the file...
    when i chroot .. the shell crashed .. and typed many lines having " access denied.." or something like this .
    ..
    so when i tried to grub-install .. it did not find anything..


    please help me .. my grad project is on the knoppix .. and it dissapeared.. after XP re-install !

    Thanks is advance..

    yours ,
    Tarek

    problem in fixing grub after windows reinstall

    If you are booting from a knoppix livecd, do _not_ click the icon on the desktop that indicates your knoppix partition.

    Now open a terminal window and type the command: su

    Once you press "enter" you are root.

    Follow the previous instructions to reinstall grub, but, without the sudo command.
