Can't boot into Linux Mint 17
« on: 2014/07/11, 04:56:10 am »
I think Grub is gone or my boot partition has vanished.  With SGD2 I can get into Mint, but not without the CD.

Rescatux couldn't fix Grub.  Log here   Also here

How can I restore Grub?

Code: [Select]
grub-install.real (GRUB) 2.02~beta2-9
grub-install.real: error: /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/ doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory.

Since you can boot into your system I recommend you to purge your current existing grub package (write down the packages you are removing while doing so) and then install it again.

Seems a file is not ok.

When installing grub package it will probably ask you in which device you want to install it. Make sure it's the hard disk which it's set as the first one to boot in the BIOS.
