[PLUG] create a boot record without use of chroot?

So my rsync backup onto non-LVM, non-RAID partitions seems to have gone ok but I need to put a bootloader onto the drive.

I have a swap partition as /dev/sda1, /boot as /dev/sda2 and / as /dev/sda5

for some reason I can't chroot into the /dev/sda5 partition on my rescue cd.

If the mount point of /dev/sda5 is /root/newroot on my rescue cd, if I'm in /root and I do chroot newroot I get:
chroot:  failed to run command /bin/zsh:  no such file or directory

(System Rescue CD may use zsh while ClearOS uses bash. Both the rescue CD and my OS are 64-bit).

Is there any way around this, or any way to create a boot record by entering information about the partitions?
