Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Quick recap: I was having a problem with hibernation so I check and the linuxswap partition is missing, showing an "unknown" chunk of drive where it was.

Happened before, booted to the liveCD and used Gparted to reformat that partition back to swap.

Then I boot........F---- grub rescue...

MBR took care of the problem, except that now I'm back to Windows only. EVERY guide out there makes me reinstall Lubuntu from scratch, a waste of time considering it will take me at least a day to reinstall everything there.

Can't I just fix grub like I did with the win MBR?
