You do not need to enter long frightening commands or perform any additional geeky operations. There are three simple and easy steps to recover your boot menu.

  1. Get the super grub disk ISO here.
  2. Burn it to a CD drive. USB versions are also available, allowing booting from an USB drive.
  3. Boot from the device to get options and the screen below.

From the list shown, select the partition you want to boot into and then Super Grub Disk boots you in.

Super grub disk allows you to boot Windows or Linux, selectively. Not only that, you can also activate inactive partitions with this software as well as hide partitions to secure them.

    SuperGrubDisk failed to work with my non-standard partition setup and Linux on memory card, but non-native install on separate LINUX computer as described here:

    >> grub-install –root-directory=/media/disk /dev/sdb

    did solve the problem.
