I was currently running Win8 and F17 as a dual boot on my home desktop with an i5 chip and Asus UEFI BIOS. Unfortunately, while I was in Win8 I accidentally removed the partition that held my F17 OS.
Now whenever I boot I'm prompted with
error: no such partiton. Entering rescue mode... and then the single prompt
Now I've been searching the web for a solution to this problem, but I haven't found an answer yet. These are some of the methods that I've tried so far:
- Burned a Windows 8 Recovery DVD; wasn't recognized
- Tried creating a liveusb with F17 i686 desktop version
- Followed several different
tutorials, using commands like
makeactivebut neither are recognized
Currently, I've found a a page in the Fedora Docs about editing the /etc/grub.d/10_linux file.
Is this what I have to do in order to fix this gigantic headache? If so, how do I go about doing this? I know that people have had this problem before; I've just been unable to find the solution myself.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Edit1: When I tried to boot with the liveUSB, it wasn't recognized. Even though I set my boot priority to be USB first. I was still taken directly to the
grub rescure> prompt.
