I did a fsck on my HDD. After a while, its doesnt respond at all no matter what I try to fix. so I hard reboot my laptop. As result, I got this error.

Error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>

I had google for the solutions. I tried this method.

ls ls (hd0,msdos6)/ set root=(hd0,msdos6) ls / set prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/boot/grub insmod /boot/grub/linux.mod normal

(but the outcome is "error: unknown filesystem")

I also tried boot from a live usb to perform boot-repair. But still cant solve any error yet. Then I try fsck the HDD from live usb, still no result.

Any idea how can I solve it?

This is my boot-repair report http://paste.ubuntu.com/5846143/
