lost and found ( for me ? )

Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64bit : error : attempt to read or write outside of disk ‘hd0’ ( can’t solve )

After rebooting Mint ( or after upgrading grub and rebooting Mint ? , I’m not sure the trigger of this problem ) , I’ve faced the following error.

Mint does not boot up. ( can not boot Mint from local HDD )

error : attempt to read or write outside of disk ‘hd0’
grub rescue >
grub rescue > ls
(hd0) (hd0.msdos5) (hd0.msdos1)

I tried the following , however I can not solve this...  finally I did the fresh installation of Mint again and this seems to be solved as of now.

1. start linux mint via live media

2. become root user

Ctrl + Alt + F1 and issue “sudo su -”
no need to enter credentials

Here’s partition info after booting Mint via live media.

HDD space ( /dev/sda ) is 320 GB. ( one HDD )
/dev/sda1 <- Mint ( ID 83 )
/dev/sda2 <- extended ( ID 5 )
/dev/sda5 <- swap ( ID 82 )

issue grub-install
# grub-install
grub-probe; error; failed to get canonical path of /cow.
Path `/boot/grub’ is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible. Aborting.

how about this ?
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
# grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda
# umount /mnt
# reboot

still can’t boot up Mint. still face the same error.
error : attempt to read or write outside of disk ‘hd0’

After doing the above things , I did the fresh installation of Mint again.
As of now , this problem seems to be solved..
