I know there are a lot of related posts but after searching for hours, none of them has worked for me so i'll post here:
When booting, I receive the error:
error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>
Trying to boot from USB or CD with either:
- Ubuntu Live CD
- Windows XP
- Super Grub
- Boot repair
Every time I receive the same error message. The only time it displays anything else, is when I ask to boot from a USB that has no mountable image. In which case it will say boot error.
So, once on grub rescue, if I do ls, it gives me:
(hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos1)
To make things work, I don't know which one is the bootable Linux and which one is the SWAP. You have to know that HD has been reformated. Anyway, trying here for msdos1 but I tried the same with msdos5:
grub rescue> ls (hd0,msdos1)/ error: unknown filesystem grub rescue> set root=(hd0,msdos1)/ grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub grub rescue> insmod linux error: unknown filesystem grub rescue> insmod normal error: unknown filesystem
Does anyone have any ideas?
I just want to make it clear that it does not let me boot from a CD, it always go to grub rescue!
I Thank you for your help in advance
