    hi

    i first had windows xp, with fdisr.

    i then installed kubuntu.

    when i booted into windows, i noticed the pre boot of fdisr was no longer there. so i re-enabled the pre boot in the fdisr gui.

    when i rebooted, grub was no longer there. i only had the fdisr pre boot. i can no longer boot into linux.

    any ideas on what i should do? im just a newbie to linux.

    both os resided in the same hard drive.

    thanks.

    Hello,

    You cannot have 2 bootloaders. Either GRUB or FDISR.

    To restore GRUB:

    Download Super Grub Disk
    http://supergrub.forjamari.linex.org/

    Burn the ISO to CD.
    Boot from CD.
    Choose Linux to boot from.
    When it informs you that it cannot boot due to GRUB error / failure / missing etc, let it repair.

    BTW, Super Grub Disk is also useful for repair and backup of many bootloaders, including MBR, LILO, GRUB.

    Mrk

    There should be no problem with latest beta from leapfrog as they moved from MBR to partition boot record.

    Mrk, iceni60, thanks for the replies.

    i just found out that if i disable fdisr preboot again, grub shows up again.

    thanks also for the supergrub, i downloaded it anyway, may come in handy in the future.

    good day and thanks much. :)
