Hey guys... My mistake was that I formated a drive using windows 7, expecting no problems from it. Then, reboot,
error: unknown filesystem
grub rescue >
Tried a few things like using live usb to reinstall 12.04 LTS, using boot-repair. Nothing helps because before completing any of those, my laptop shuts down.
Later, tried to use gparted and realised, the drive I reformated was unallocated. Wanted to allocated, can't because the primary is maximised with one extended. So yeah, help please.
I'm at my wits end here. Thanks.
