Hi,

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:

http://supergrub.forjamari.linex.org/

...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.

Thanks, That's a very useful tool. We are going to be well armed. cool.gif

I used to have lot of problems recovering partitions and MBRs. Especially when windows was involved.

The NTFS filesystem is very delicated and can put you easily in a reboot loop.

Also, Windows destroys any bootloader you got in the machine.

The point about SuperGrub is that is just for recovering MBR or installing a new GRUB, and is aimed to people like me (without too many skills) and does all the MBR recovery process automatically. You don't have to do anything, just inset the CD and and give two or three answers (Yes, I want,... Yes, I want...).

It's like getting married (in the good sense, of course). :- )

The ultimateBootCD is something more, like a swiss-knife.
