10 Ways To rEcoVer GrUbLoadEr WitHouT SofTwArE (SOLVED)

Recovery Using the Ubuntu Desktop/Live CD (RECOMMENDED)

1. Download the latest version of Ubuntu Desktop edition from and burn your Ubuntu CD or use your USB.

2. Reboot your computer and boot into a live session.

3. Mount your Ubuntu partition from Places menu. (ATTENTION!!!!! you Must mount your UBUNTU PARTITION ONLY!!!!)

4. Your Ubuntu partition is now mounted. You will need to continue Using the Terminal. Open terminal Applications>Accessories>Terminal.

5. Verify if your partition is correct.

mount | tail -1 

6. You should see output similar to this:

/dev/sda2 on /media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-b811-92b993823444 type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit)

          a. Note the designation for the disk 
in my laptop is /media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-  
b811-92b993823444 which I will be using later.
          b. The type ext4 is the indicator to make sure this is indeed the Ubuntu boot 
              partition. Only ubuntu use the ext4 file sytem. For Windows they use either 
Fat32 or NTFS file system.
c.If what you have is not similar, unmount it and try mount another partition.

7. Now that everything is mounted, we just need to reinstall GRUB by specifying the correct directory and the correct drive name:

sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-b811-92b993823444 /dev/sda

If you get BIOS warnings try:

sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-b811-92b993823444 /dev/sda --recheck

Replace /media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-b811-92b993823444 with the location you want to install GRUB on.

8. If all went well, you should see something like this:

Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.

(hd0)   /dev/sda


Installation finished. No error reported.

9. Then type 


10. Reboot, making sure to boot to your hard drive and not to the live CD. Grub should be installed and both Ubuntu and Windows should have been automatically detected and listed in the menu. The Master Boot Record will execute Grub as the initial bootloader. The Windows bootloader is contained within the Windows partition and will then be chainloaded by the Grub bootloader.
