I have reinstalled Windows 7 which blew away my GRUB boot loader. I am trying to use the rescue option on the DVD to fix it but I am getting the following error:


/sbin/grub2-install /dev/sda


Path '/boot/grub2' is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible. Aborting.

I am following this document..

Any ideas? Really don't want to reinstall.

Are you sure you have chrooted to /mnt/sysimage. Otherwise you /boot directory might point to your CD/DVD/USB.
