I have been having some ‘issues’ with Lilo recently on a Debian LXDE system and thought it was about time I replaced it with Grub instead. This is how you do it.
Open up a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install grub
sudo grub-install /dev/sdb
Replace /dev/sdb with the hard disk you want to install the bootloader on.
We then need to create the file menu.1st which holds all the Grub boot information so type:
All that is left to do is uninstall Lilo and we do that by typing:
sudo apt-get remove lilo
Hopefully that will install grub in the MBR.
