This question already has an answer here:
I've been using Ubuntu to for years now, I'm an EE and love the system. This week I was having trouble with Ubuntu so I decided to do a fresh install parallel with Win XP. The install crashed midstream and now I can not boot at all. I believe all I need to do is repair the
grub.cfg file, or maybe another file?
So, I booted from my liveCD and went into the file structure and everything seems intact, However, the
grub.cfg file looks like it's a mess. I don't remember how to gain access to GRUB via permissions. I did it once before a year ago.
Any one with any ideas?
