Screen goes to "grub>" black screen after trying to merge 2 drives
I really need help in this area. Previously, I've installed Fedora Core 6 on my Dell laptop. Prior to that, I've partitioned the disks into 2 using Partition Magic 8.0. If I remembered correctly, I chose install another OS. There were no problems. For FC6, I chose Linux Ext2 instead of FAT32. After I created this space, I installed FC6 and made the GRUB bootloader to load WinXP as my default. Thus everytime I switched on my computer, the GRUB bootloader would display "Loading WinXP in 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1.."
However, since I seldom use FC6, and since I needed more disk space, I tried to merge back the Linux disk space into my C:\ (WinXP) using the Partition Magic software. I chose the option Merge Partitions after I formatted the Linux Ext2 to be FAT32, as this option can only merge partitions of FAT or FAT32 type. However, this operation went horribly wrong and now I'm stuck at the black screen which only shows me a black screen with the following display:
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (638K lower / 260544K upper memory)
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename.]
When I typed "root (hd0,0)", I got "Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xce".
However, when I typed "root (hd0,1)", I got "Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0x1c".
Also, when I typed "find /vmlinuz", the display read "Error 15: File not found"
Is there a way I can save this situation?
Many thanks in advace.
