GRUB Rescue Stuck, please help


Hi guys,

I had two partitions in my PC, a Windows 10 and a Debian Linux, with GRUB loader installed. I decided to change my debian into a Ubuntu partition, so, from Windows Disk Partitioner, I deleted the Debian Partition. But now, when I try to boot my PC, it says the following:

Welcome to GRUB!

error: no such partition.
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue> _

When I type ls, it gives me:

(hd0) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) (hd1) (hd1,msdos4) (fd0)

trying to ls (any partition), it says:

error: unknown filesystem.

Except for fd0, that it says:

error: fd0 read error.

I have a Ubuntu live USB drive, but I cannot access the BIOS, my computer shows the brand logo and automatically jumps to GRUB rescue mode, if I press F2, F11, F12, Delete or Supr, it doesn't do anything, it jumps to the same screen. I don't know what else to do, please, any help is welcome, thank you

You are going to have to be faster at hitting the key(s), or at least find the correct one. Are you hitting these keys while the spash screen is showing ?.
Just keep trying - also add <Esc> and <F10> to the list.

When you deleted the Debian partition you also deleted some files that grub needs to display the menu so it defaults to the grub command line prompt as you see being displayed.

What is the make/model of your computer? Your going to have to figure out what key is required to either enter the BIOS/UEFI setup or boot menu. Sometimes just holding down a key will trigger an error and automatically enter the BIOS setup however not sure it still works on modern PCs.

Thank you very much for the explanation Michaelk, the problem is that usually, in the logo screen, a line appears at the bottom saying "F11 -> Boot Menu , F12 -> BIOS".

But since this problem started, this line hasn't been shown at any moment :$

try pressing the the F11 key fast and quick multiple times as soon as you hit the on button.
