I’m in need of assistance in what I should do. Currently I do not have any distro of Linux installed. I was only using the Windows 10 Tech Preview, however I have had a strange occurrence.
Last night whilst sleeping, my computer woke up from sleep mode, I assumed Windows update was trying to install updates or something, so I just shut it down and went back to sleep.
When I woke up this morning, the boot screen said:
GRUB rescue> no such partition
This got me worried. I know from previous usage of Ubuntu and Peppermint that GRUB is the Linux bootloader. So that left me pretty bummed before I left for work.
I’m now back from work and currently using an old liveCD of Peppermint 2 (I know right! lol). I’ve had to boot it various times to get it to play nice with my computer, so now I shall explain my dilemma.
Currently as is, I have no other computer to burn a liveCD or liveUSB. I do have an empty 4gb usb drive.
My options as I see them are to download a ISO image and burn a new livecd onto it, or possibly even a Windows repair disk.
Or if someone here is nice enough, can guide me through manually repairing grub, so that I can at least boot into Windows.
I understand you fellas aren’t obliged to help Windows users, but this has been the 4th time this month that I’ve lost my bootloader through Windows update, so I plan on dual-booting.
Personally I think this time around it has been a RAT, but I won’t ever know.
Currently I have 3 drives in my machine. I know that /dev/sdc1 is my boot drive. /dev/sda1 is my backup drive (G:/) & /dev/sdb1 is my drive with all my games and steam library (D:/).
