Just boot any Linux live and chroot into your installation to update the bootloader. I don't think there is any need to bother with additional special mounts in this case. So something like:

Code: Select all

mkdir mountpoint
sudo mount /dev/sda1 mountpoint    #whatever your Salix root partition is
sudo chroot mountpoint
sudo lilo -v
*oops, forgot the chroot!

This laptop only boot from CD or LAN. So download the CD of 14.1 ... and

Code: Select all

> fdisk -l
> mount /dev/sdaX /mnt
> chroot /mnt
> lilo -v
> exit
> reboot
Finally, keep it in a super safe place (14.1), :lol:

Thanks Mimosa,
