INSTALLING GRUB

by Balasundaram

Hai . I wish all of them had a nice sunday….
Today I like to post something about installation procedure of GRUB….
This situation of installing GRUB occurs when we have already installed linux operating system and
after that we have installed any windows OSes…….
So we have to install the GRUB manually to get on to the linux OS during the boot time…
For this we have to follow the following steps………..
1)First insert the live CD of ubuntu(any of its version)
2)Then open the terminal and type the following commands
i)sudo grub
after typing this command you get a sudo prompt in the terminal
ii)find /boot/grub/stage1
This shows the partition number where you have installed the linux operating system.
iii)root(hd0,4)
Here you have to specify the partition number as the second argument.
iv)setup(hd0)

This installs the GRUB in your system….
3)Then you can reboot the system and can select the OS from the GRUB that is installed………..

I think this will be useful for the linux geeks probably…………..

JKBS………………
