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.

another life saver is http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
it's very cool as it has tools for making boot floppies, boot flash drives etc.
I don't use it very often but when you need it, you need it BAD!

the opensuse install CD is very good too, the rescue mode is a very rich environment and has all the tools needed to fix and mount practically any file system and edit stuff, I use that a lot (even my colleague who's an ubuntu fanboy thinks it's good).
