how to fix grub rescue > unknown filesystem ??


Please Help,

I have a Windows 7 and Fedora 20 dual boot pc .
Today i deleted the fedora partition from windows disk management and then restarted my pc.
Now i am stuck in the 'grub rescue > ' screen ...... It is showing 'no such partition ' , after searching through the internet i tried these commands......

grub rescue > set boot=(hd0,msdos6)

grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/*boot/grub

grub rescue> insmod normal (after this line ,i am getting the error , grub rescue > unknown filesystem)

grub rescue> normal

Don't know what to do ,but i want to get back to the windows os first ,also i don't have the windows or fedora live cd . My Windows recovery is stored in my pc hard drive....... plzz help so that i can resolve this issue

I would say that * is not necessary

What has happened is that you have deleted grub files pesent in linux partition.

If you can make grub rescue cd, then you can boot into Windows 7. Read info page of grub about howto make one. Have luck as grub rescue cd doesn't boots in some systems.

I am not sure but booting with Windows 7 CD and starting the repair option may help. Do web and LQ search or wait for others to help.

you DID make the REQUIRED "windows rescue disk"
the VERY first time you booted windows ( the very first day you got the computer )

pop in that disk that you made

and reinstall the Microsoft boot loader



seeing as you removed linux
this is now a Microsoft only computer
you might want to use the Microsoft web site and learn how to reinstall Microsoft's bootloader
