    Need to reinstall lilo - don't have boot-disk...

    Hi!


    I installed both Knoppix and Windows and it worked.

    I cloned the HD and the copy didn't work. Lilo crashed.

    So I installed another boot-loader and now only windows is bootable.


    How can I install lilo again? I have access to lilo.conf via Knoppix-CD.

    is it just :

    lilo -C (path of your lilo.conf)

    after you boot into KNOPPIX CD ? Of course, you need to change the content of lilo.conf to match your HD settings.

    Without further information, not much I can think of.

    What I usually do is,

    boot to knoppix cd

    mount the hd partition ex: mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2
    (use the proper device for your partition)

    chroot to the partition, chroot /mnt/hda2

    then edit /etc/lilo.conf with your favorite editor

    then run /sbin/lilo -v

    HTH

    Mount the partition that contains /etc/lilo.conf make any changes necessary to lilo.conf then sudo chroot /mnt/hd?? /sbin/lilo -v to commit lilo to the MBR. replace ?? with correct drive letter and partition number you mounted.
