Fix broken MBR
To fix a broken MBR, the following may work. 1. Boot the machine using Ubuntu Live USB/CD. 2. Install lilo in a terminal: sudo bash apt-get install lilo Doing liloconfig and lilo as the installer talks about is not needed. 3. Then run this to install lilo in the mbr: sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr Reference: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=76205&hilit=+LILO#p445076
