I'm trying to reinstall GRUP after installing Windows.

sudo grub

grub>find /boot/grub/stage1

After this, I'm getting the error "file not found".

Can anyone help me?

Were you able to boot Linux? Is that code the grub console or a linux console? – Paolo Nov 18 '11 at 9:50

You need to reboot with a Linux CD (for example Debian installation CD), than enter in recovery mode and mount your Linux root partition (and /boot if it is in a separate partition). After that launch grub-install as root in recovery shell (the shell running in the system you have on your HD).
