Reinstalling GRUB

From MEPIS Documentation Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

If you damaged your OS loader and the computer doesn't boot anymore you could try to reinstall GRUB:

  1. Boot the MEPIS CD.
  2. Select the resolution that work best for you.
  3. Log in as root (password is "root").
  4. Start MEPIS System Assistant
  5. Select Repair System Boot tab.
  6. Reinstall GRUB in the same place you put it when you installed MEPIS first time.

If that doesn't work try the command line:

  • For MEPIS 6.X
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/hdc1/boot/grub hd0
  • For MEPIS 7.0
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/sdc1/boot/grub sd0

(this assumes that you install GRUB in MBR of the first hard disk)
