First you need to find your old disk partitions, and mount them under

second, chroot to /mnt/sysimage

third run grub-install with the appropriate arguments for you system to
re-install grub

Read the man pages on the appropriate commands to be sure what you will
need to use as arguments to these commands.

If you can't successfully install grub under the chroot, you may need to
determine the correct partitions and use the --root-directory option
outside the chroot.
