I'm dual booted with xp and current #bang.bpo - had to reinstall xp and lost the grub bootloader. Tried the various fixes in the forums and got nowhere. Hate to have to reinstall and loose all my little tweaks - need to reinstall grub --Help !

Have you tried this?
I would think that if you've got a live #! USB or CD then it oughta be fairly straightforward using the link above. For other reading:

mikhou - thanks for your reply - I have a problem - when I follow the sequence I get this --" crunchbang@crunchbang:~$ sudo mkdir -p /media/sda2 TARGET=//media/sda2
crunchbang@crunchbang:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda2 $TARGET
mount: can't find /dev/sda2 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
crunchbang@crunchbang:~$ " -
I changed the sequence to 'sda2' as that's where my #bang is located, xp is on sda1. I also tried the sequence using sda1 but that didn't work either. Any suggestions ?
sudo mkdir -p /media/sda2 TARGET=//media/sda2
This should be 2 distinct command lines, or you need to enter ; after the first command, so
sudo mkdir -p /media/sda2 TARGET=/media/sda2
sudo mkdir -p /media/sda2; TARGET=/media/sda2
I suspect that variable $TARGET was empty, and the mount command was left with one single argument, which means... mount where /etcc/fstab or /etc/mtab specified.

Guys - much thanks - went back to the suggested thread and this time it WORKED ! -saved my A## !
Glad that it worked out for you. I've bookmarked several of xaos52's posts in the past knowing that at some point in the future, I'm going to need them when I screw something up!
