After I have done an upgrade from Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu server 10.04, the server stops with a GRUB rescue message, how can I recover my GRUB without reinstalling?

I guess there is no work around a live CD so I've just burned a CD and recovered my grub with this. (You have to take a desktop edition (no terminal in server CD)) – Reivax Jan 31 '11 at 10:24
