    Just boot into the live cd and reinstall grub. Once you have booted up the live cd you can go into konsole and type grub ( as root) . This will take you to the grub prompt. You should then type find /boot/grub/stage1 . this will show you what hard drive grub is installed on. The hard drive number and partition number will be different for you. Then you can type root (hd1,4) . (hd1,4) will probably not be what you are going to have so you will need to modify that accordingly. then you type setup (hd1) and that should be it. You should now have grub reinstalled.

    grub
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    root (hd1,4)
    setup (hd1)

    there all done
