Stupid windows install :(


Recommended Posts

Help, im a n00b and i cant get up! lol.

I dual boot Mandriva and WinXP. Every so often (about a year) I feel the need to reinstall windows and clean it out. So I did that today, tweaked a few things, installed drivers and rebooted.. only to notice that my grub wasent there! I dident think that installing windows on side of a partitioned drive would wipe out the boot loader, but i guess it did. Does anyone know how I would install a bootloader with out having to reinstall another OS?

I had this problem A LONG TIME AGO lol. So I don't remember all the steps but I know it's stupid proof because I remember I could do it lol. Go download Super Grub Disk. It's a boot cd that's made to fix problems with grub in a dual boot machine. Try it let me know what you think.
