I had a dual boot setup with a Debian based distro (crunchbang) as primary and win 7 also installed. Recently I reinstalled win 7 on it's existing partition but now the boot loader is gone and win 7 starts automatically.

How do I get the boot loader back to select my is at boot? Think it was grub running previously. I don't want to reinstall crunchbang if at all possible.


The general steps in these cases are:

  1. Boot from a live CD
  2. Mount your linux partitions
  3. Bind mount /dev /proc /sys /dev/pts
  4. Chroot in the mounted system
  5. Re-install GRUB
