    How do I Install GRUB2...Faulty GRUB.

    Please, How do I install grub2 and manually configure it to recognise windows 7 and ubuntu 12.10 and Kali-linux? I could have sticked with just grub that came with Kali, but my machine enters into grub rescue mode after running windows.

    So I had to run these each time i accessed windows 7 to get the bootloader

    set prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/boot/grub
    set root=(hd0,msdos6)
    insmod normal
    normal

    Thanks in advance.

    This was my terminal output when I ran

    fdisk -l

    root@kundi:~# fdisk -l

    I managed to fix it myself, but how I did it is what I am not sure of.

    This were the things I did,

    Booted into kali
    Reintalled grub (apt-get install grub)
    restarted my machine and booted into ubuntu
    in ubuntu I went to fix it swap partition
    then i restarted and booted into windows
    restarted windows and all went well from there.
