Many years ago it was possible to create a boot

I guess, the real question is, is it possible to reinstall grub with a
LiveCD and the answer is yes.
Use knoppix or some other LiveCD that has an unmodified "grub-install"
(e.g. ubuntu, CentOS)
1. mount the partition that has /boot (e.g. /dev/sda1 is mounted
2. As root do "grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda"
3. This will re-install GRUB on the MBR of the first disk.
Reboot and you should see your familiar grub menu.
