You could install grub again from a live DVD.

well - I trid to install kubuntu in the partition where the 64 studio is installed and when it tried to install grub - it failed- it was a different install process screen that i wasn't familiar with- I don't think it formatted the drive- i will try a copule of other things -but as of right now the system is unbootable-

I'm not sure I understand. I take it that this is what you're referring to, which appears to be an operating system.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64_Studio

Do you mean you tried installing Kubuntu on the partition that 64 studio is on, without formatting the partition (to delete 64 studio)?

Also, do you have another Linux operating system on a different partition on this computer?

I don't see why that in itself would break grub. Most operating systems are designed to be installed in their original format, then updated once installed.

I have my primary drive where i keep Windows7/zorin/ubuntu.mint  - 600 gig. then i have a second hard drive installed- where I put -last night- Haze OS- that went fine- then i tried to install 64 studio- it's an old distro- 2008- and the install failed- but the grub is still in there somewhere- I am going to wipe the second drive and then update grub from the primary drive- we will see- I am using gparted live to do this off of a live Mint CD-

Ah, so you can still boot the computer into the operating systems you have on the first hard drive?

I'm still not clear as to whether you tried installing two operating systems on the same partition on the second hard drive.

That won't do much good when you can't boot up.

You now have two choices. Either mount the partition that Mint 17.1 is on and install grub from the live DVD as per the advice I posted in post #2, or else mount the Mint 17.1 partition and "chroot" into it, and install Grub from there, as per the advice Nick posted above.

Both methods should have the same end result.
