Hi Mitch,

Can you be more specific, what commands did you type in the console to mount the HD?

Possible solution:

Go to console:

mount /dev/sda1 /media/floppy

(I use floppy as mounting point because I have no floppy drive in my laptop. It's just a name, doesn't matter.)
(Your boot partition, containing GRUB, should be sda1, but you can make sure by opening the partition editor on DVD)

Hope this works for you.
