I have restored grub in the past after restoring filesystem backups to new
HDDs, always found this works:
Combined with info from elsewhere (the Ubuntu docs are quite useful:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2), I have used these commands from a
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
chroot /mnt bash
Hope I got that write, just quickly copied from my notes while at work,
something to look at anyway
