I'm not sure how things are from rescue mode - but once in rescue mode - 
if your system is located at /mnt/sysimage, you could mount your disks 
there and then chroot into it and run grub-install /dev/sda .
example (and I'm not real sure about this ...)
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sysimage/
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sysimage/boot
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/sda
reboot from hard drive

I have no idea if that will work but it is what I would try ... :/

Yeah hairy desks are not good for old non-optical mice :)


Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes ...
That way when you do criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes!
