5er Posted March 29, 2010 Report Share Posted March 29, 2010 Hello, I have recently reinstalled Windows XP and that bastard overran my grub bootloader as usual. I tried to reinstall grub from a live cd, but I get the following error: "Bad file or directory type" What I typed: grub> root (hd0,4) grub> setup(hd0) What I got: Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no Checking if "/grub/stage1"exists... no Error 15: File not found find command does not find it either and I don't see any stage1 in /boot or /boot/grub with any file manager. /boot/grub only contains menu.lst.example or something like that. hd0,4 (sda5) is the / partition, but it is a logical partition. Could that be the problem? [moved from Software by spinynorman] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
