Deleted partition with deepin on it, now stuck in grub rescue please help.
Hi, yesterday I decided to install Deepin in a dual boot. I later decided I no longer needed/wanted it so I deleted the partition. Apparently I had grub on that partition as well, and now my laptop only goes to grub rescue and will not boot.
I have an acer aspire v5 touch. Removing the hard drive is not an option. I have tried to access UEFI but my computer just beeps and goes to grub rescue. I have grub rescue disk on a flash drive, I used unetbootin to do that, but iI cannot get to any boot menu (f12), and when I use ls (hd0)/ I get a unknown file system error. Please help, and sorry for my grammar/formatting, I'm on mobile.
Tl;dr: Deleted partition containing grub and deepin, now can only get to grub rescue, and I keep getting an unknown file system error, please help.
At start of computer it shows what key is used to enter BIOS/UEFI setup. Though it may be fast to be seen easily. Or refer your computer manual.
Enter setup and change boot sequence. Or you might even have an option(key) to just change boot sequence while startup.
I know that the UEFI setup key is f2, but when I press it during the boot process I only hear the beep that usually signals entering setup. However, it just goes to the grub rescue screen. I turned on f12 to access the boot menu, but that hasn't worked either.
Please help from here: after meeting around with f2 key and hardware reset (f12+per held down until powers off) I managed to mash my way into bios where I got a secure boot error that I had the option of [ok] to respond with. Afterwards, windows 8 booted! Now what do I do to completely remove grub and make sure this won't happen again?
