Recover a system from LiveCD

Mainly due to Grub failing to boot the partition, I need a mechanism to work as root on the non-bootable partition

Run the Debian Live DVD
parted -l
mkdir /target (Usually this is created by the rescue system)
mount /dev/sda8 /target
Here /dev/sda8 is my system root mount point
chroot /target

Now I can work on the target system as root.
