Maybe i wasn't too clear. Sorry.
I only need to make that disk bootable with grub. To do this, i can
access r/w to the disk by usb. Done that, the disk is going to get back
inside my laptop, finally bootable. Right now the bootloader is no
longer on the disk, and so i cannot boot really anything. I can't use
floppies nor cd to reinstall.
Is there a way to do this?
