Help to recover default SO boot

Post#1 by bfds89 » 05 Mar 2013, 19:40

I was trying Porteus to see how it was.
Dunno why I made a mistake of runnig the script into my internal HD wich was running Mint KDE. Now my PC boots only to Porteus, and I cant have access to my default SO.
There must be something I can do, to delete Porteus and make Linux boot from my default Mint installation.
I was exploring the boot folder but Im still too Linux newbie and Im affraid I may delete something and messed up my system.
I was hopping someone could help me, I really need access to my default OS.

Thanks for you attention :good:

hi bfds89,

please follow instructions from this post to reinstall Mint's GRUB in MBR: ... 301#p13252

all commands must be run as 'root' so boot porteus -> open terminal -> run 'su' (password is 'toor') and then proceed with instructions.

let me know if you stuck somewhere.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
