Rarely needed, most of the time the problem can be fixed without a reinstallation. That being said, reinstalling MEPIS is extremly easy (it might take less than 15 minutes):

  1. Boot the MEPIS CD.
  2. Select the kernel and resolution that work best for you.
  3. Log in as root (password is "root").
  4. Run installation center (use the same settings as you did first time, same partitions, same file systems).
  5. Don't forget to select the option to preserve the /home partition or folder.
  6. Use the same username and password.
  7. Respond "yes" to the question if you want to use the old user account
  8. Reinstall GRUB in the same place you put it when you installed MEPIS first time.
