    Default How can i restore backtrack bootmenu after windows 7 installed

    Hi friends.

    I had dual boot bt4 and windows 7. First, i had install windows 7 and then i installed Bt4 Everything was fine. but , i wanted windows 7 boot menu then with the help of windows 7 DVD I loaded windows 7 boot loader at bootup. Then Edited bcd in windows 7 and entered bt4 entry and earlier I already created Bt4 boot drive image through BT4 OS by "dd" Command. everything i did correct because i used to with fedora linux. But when open my pc then i choose "bt4" from windows boot menu then it do not start. Now i need to restore my Bt4 bootmenu(grubmenu) how can I ?. I know how to install grub but how can i put grub in mbr so bt4 boot menu comes again.

    "grub"
    "find /boot/grub/stage1"
    take the hd (value,value) that that command returns and run
    "root hd(value,value)"
    write to mbr using "setup (hd0)"
    then "quit"

    quick and easy

    forgot to mention to boot your live cd and open a terminal in order to do this
