Necessary conditions:

Mandatory connection to the Internet.
The image of Linux Mint/Ubuntu, which is installed on the computer, recorded on a disk or flash drive.

1. Inserted into the computer's disk or flash drive with the distribution, restart, and a bootable Linux system in Live mode.
During installation of any program in the Live mode, the terminal will not be prompted for a password, but the program will be installed!
Installation latest version into Linux Mint:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair
2. After installation, open Boot Repair from the menu. Should start a system scan program:

3. When scanning is finished, the main window opens Boot Repair:

You can just click on the button Recommend a repair to start the recovery, and better make sure where you will install the GRUB boot loader by clicking on the button Advanced options ->GRUB location:

In the recovery period, be careful, as they can be asked the questions and instructions with terminal commands that should be run to continue the restore process.

The second method is more long, you can download a LIVECD from an already installed Boot Repair
boot-repair-disk-32bit.iso
boot-repair-disk-64bit.iso
In our build of Linux Mint is already installed Boot Repair.
See Our distributions in the top menu of the website
P.S. by the Way, this method will most likely be working after you install the Linux operating system to a computer with UEFI, when not displayed GRUB.
 
Good Luck!!!
