It would be easier just to boot off a pen drive, and then reinstall grub
(without reinstalling the whole system). To do this you should then run:
sudo grub-install /dev/sdX --boot-directory /path/to/boot/
*Where X is your hard disk's letter, probably an 'a' if you only have
Path to boot is the location of your boot folder - you can find this by
opening your hard disk in the file manager, going into the /boot folder,
and copying its path (Control-L).
Hope it goes well
