After deleting my fiesty fawn partition late yesterday, Grub came choking with an Error 22 message. No big deal, I thought… all I have to do is re-install grub. So I got out my dapper livecd and fired the pc up. I executed the grub-install command with the appropriate options and rebooted the pc… Error 22 again! Repeated the process… no change. So I got out my breezy alternate install cd and skipped to the “install grub boot loader step”. Grub installation failed! Now I was in big trouble. If all else fails, google is the way. I found some instructions on using the grub shell to install grub and that worked! So for those who need to install grub using the ubuntu dapper (and above) livecd, here they are:
Open the terminal and enter the following commands
(Use the output from this command in the next command)
You may have to modify the hard disk parameters to suit your setup… that’s what the second command helps you do. My root partition is the second on my first hard disk. If yours is the first for instance, then you’ll have to modify the “root” step as follows:
Hope this helps someone.
