Well I would of deleted it but this vbulletin board here I can't find the delete post button. It was a problem in which GRUB loading stage 1.5 would appear and then the system would reboot.

To tell you the truth, it was simplistic for a Linux console user, but not for anyone else.

You take the live CD

Type Rescue at the boot screen

When everything is loaded after the instructions, type:
grub-install /dev/boot

it will reinstall grub to the hard drive with the boot section.

Just so this works for everyone, you should use grub-install /dev/hda or whatever your bootable drive is. Depending on the distro, the /dev/boot node is not always [or usually] created. Also, any LiveCD will work as long as you chroot yourself into the broken install.

It will if there is a symlink from /dev/boot --> /dev/hda, but not every version of udev creates that symlink.
