Where is my GRUB located?? I want to install BURG now so i want to know where GRUB is.

This is my partition table.Plz help.

enter image description here

I tried The boot info script but cannot understand anything from its output..

The output is-

              Boot Info Script 0.61      [1 April 2012]

============================= Boot Info Summary: ===============================

=> Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 1 of the same hard drive for core.img. core.img is at this location and looks for (,msdos8)/boot/grub on this drive.

In your case, the software 'grub' is located in /dev/sda8


For configuration see


Probably grub is started in your master boot record of the harddisk /dev/sda

It depend, since you have a dual boot, and you likely have everything on master boot record ( mbr ). Can you post the output of the bootinfo script, so we can look together ?
