I am still downloading the aptosid iso (I am on a slow line).

After the switch to Grub 2 broke my system (just upgraded to aptosid this morning) I am afraid I have to reinstall everything. It would be easier if I'd only have to (re)install grub. Is there a way to do this from the current ISO?

Thanks in advance

TNX for your quick replay I found it already by myself.
Still downloading the ISO and hoping it works.

I just needed this line:
      Code:

/usr/sbin/grub-install --recheck --no-floppy --root-directory=/media/xdxx /dev/sdy


The problem was that the download of the current iso with grub2 took 5 hours and writing it to a USB-stick took another 45 Minutes which almost drove me crazy.
