this is a CD that recover automatically your lost Grub MBR, for example in those cases when we can't boot our linux Distro after re-installing windows in the same PC.

I have to live a little with windows because of one application that I need. Recently I had to re-install the windows system, and after that I felt very bad being unable to boot my Debian.

There are some method in order to restore the Linux Boot. The Pro one, as google says, is done by mounting chrooted our partitions and reinstalling Grub, by using a live CD or a Rescue CD.

I first proved that way, but for any reason it didn't recognize my Laptop Hardware.

Finally I' ve found the amazing SuperGRUB CD at:


...with foreign languages support. :-)

It works like a charm. In only 3 minutes, my Debian system was running again.

Don't miss this amazing tool.

Good find! I got a copy just for peace of mind with my inscrutable vista bootloader on my laptop (still having trouble with the atheros 507eg in 64bit kubuntu- and having to dual boot). Thoughtful of you post this.
