Restore Grub from a live Ubuntu cd

Hi All,

I recently setup a dual boot with ubuntu and xp and encountered this issue:
When i started the system, i was expecting the boot menu to appear so that i can choose which OS to start,unfortunately it did not and went on to load xp directly.
Try this out to restore the grub(boot menu):

Note: Type these commands one at a time and hit enter after entering each command.

Boot using your live cd and then click Applications->Terminal and start typing commands

1) sudo grub
2) find /grub/boot/stage1
(This will return a location something like (hd number,number) ex: (hd0,1))
3) root (hd0,1)
4) setup(hd0)
5) exit

And the best step now, yeah you got it Reboot and when you reboot you should your menu to choose the OS to start.

Remaking a movie which was famous for award winning performances and solid dialogues was much of a dare - but Karan Johar produced and Karan malhotra directed Agneepath (2012) does not dissapoint at all.First things first : Its a remake - not a ripoff - and that works bigtime in favor of the movie. Story is same but the treatment is way different and that makes sure that comparison does not spoil anything.Hrithik as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan - Outstanding in one word - every scene he has done shows that he has lived the character and he did not need much dialogues as his expressions and eyes do all the talking - his character is all raw no style and only focused on avenging his father's death. If anyone would have done justice to Vijay Chauhan it is Hrithik. Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala : Once bollywood&…
