I currently have an OS called Backtrack installed alongside Windows 7, and I use Grub to boot.
The problem is the Grub that comes with this is version 1.98. I'm fine with it except for one thing: sometimes when I turn on my computer it does funny things, like it will be in a reboot loop or just show a flashing line in the top left of my screen. Meaning that my Grub is somehow corrupted or broken in some way.
To fix this I just simply run a live CD of "Boot-Repair-CD" and choose auto fix and then everything is normal. BUT after a little while it will be gone again and I will have to go back to the CD to fix it.
I am really getting tired of this and I just want to go to Grub2. I tried through a Ubuntu live CD to download the boot repair thing and ran it, but when I run the option "update grub to latest version" it will start then comes up with an error "grub-pc failed - operation cancelled" or somthing like that. Basically it fails because somthing went wrong.
Is there any other way to update Grub? Because this cycle is really annoying.
