    regarding this post..
    http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=24113

    i tried the live cd method as I thought that i will be able to manage......

    but when i load the live cd everything goes fine...
    i enter the grub command
    grub terminal opens up.....

    then when i press root (hd0,2) and press enter then it says that the selected disk does not exist???????
    i have treid to change it to hd1,hd2,hd3 etc. and ,0,1,2,3,4,5,6, etc. but it shoes the same error .......

    also, i tried that maybe the partition was not mounted therefore, i mounted the partition in a folder on the desktop...

    any suggestions or solutions where i am going wrong?????????

    It should be
    Code:
    grub-install /dev/sda
    if you have a SATA drive.
