Thank you to all of you. Tony Dietrich found the right solution. A 
"grub-install /dev/sda", made my system to work again.
This list is always such a great help. Thank you to everybody.

Now my system run again, is there a way to create a kind of "ghost" of my 
whole system to be able in case of a major pb to reinstall everything from 
scratch ? I have a dvd burner and would like to secure a little bit my 
system. Thank you. Francois
