I booted my computer today and found the Grub rescue command prompt. I have been given this computer and it has Linux and windows 7 on it, but I have only ever used the windows section. I have no idea about Linux at all, and was startled by this "Grub" thing.
It won't let me do anything in the command prompt, and i can't boot windows. I have a netbook, so there's no CD drive on the computer. I need a way to get into windows 7 from this command prompt. With a little bit of searching (on my phone) I found a couple things to enter that are supposed to let me into windows. I tried this:
1) rootnoverify (hd0,0) 2) chainloader +1 3) makeactive 4) boot
That was the first sequence of things that didn't give me an error. But when I got to typing "boot" it told me the Bootmgr cannot be found...? I have no idea what this means. All I want to do is to be able to boot windows again, I don't care how, I just want access. Like I said, my computer doesn't have a CD drive, so I can't use a disk. Is there a way to fix this through the Grub command prompt? Any answers would be appreciated.
