Hi I've just installed Ubuntu on my new rack server. It all worked fine until I came to the GRUB boot loader installation part. It just couldn't install so I skipped it and continued without a bootloader.

Now when I've set the os up ill need to boot ubuntu in order to try to install grub again. Though I have no clue on how to. I've googled a little and saw that there's something called livecd thoug it seems like that's just for the Ubuntu desktop version.

So my question is how do I boot ubuntu without a bootloader? Is it even possible?

Also I have raid 1 if that helps in anyway

You can use desktop version and fix grub. –  K.K Patel Jul 15 '13 at 4:02
