I have restored grub in the past after restoring filesystem backups to new
HDDs, always found this works:


Combined with info from elsewhere (the Ubuntu docs are quite useful:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2), I have used these commands from a
live CD:

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda
mkdir /mnt
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
chroot /mnt bash
sudo update-grub

Hope I got that write, just quickly copied from my notes while at work,
something to look at anyway
