Installing Boot-Loader from LiveCD/LiveDVD?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I'm sure you've been in my position before, whence, for no apparent reason, the Boot-Loader doesn't load.


You could always use your Installation disc, which would have a timeout till booting to the 1st detected partition. However there are certain disadvantages to this, including;

  1. Can't choose between the different partitions
  2. Need the DVD in your drive 24/7
  3. Can't select certain boot paramaters you may need

So my idea to solve this problem is, Installation of Chameleon from a LiveDVD


If you have any ideas on how I could pull this off, or if there is already a solution out there that can do this for me, I'd be grateful if you could share with me the information.


Thanks in advance,

Ended up not helping, but after 4 or so reinstallations I can now boot up!


Got 4 of my 9 OSs installed!
