Repair grub mbr and /boot using ubuntu 9.04 live CD

Hi there,

how to recover Ubuntu after installing Windows Vista x64? Vista is installed on another HDD partition, however it has probably overwritten the GRUB. I don't have the Ubuntu Live CD. How to do that without the CD?

Thank you in advance for the reply!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In the future, you should always install Windows first then Linux second as Windows never plays nice with other operating systems and always overwrites the MBR. – stevenrjanssens May 9 '10 at 19:15

Reinstall GRUB. I believe you'll need some kind of LiveCD for this though.
