This question already has an answer here:

I am getting this grub rescue error no filesystem thing. I have read a lot of threads on this issue, but those solutions are not working. I tried live CD, and changed the booting option from hard disk to CD ROM, but still I get the same grub rescue error.

I have two operating systems, the other one is Windows 7. I formatted some part of my hard drive during which GRUB might have lost some files. I get that, but now what should I do? Please tell me how to deal with this thing:

Error: unknown filesystem.
grub rescue>

If you believe you have done as you mentioned in the above question then you will have to use either CD or USB to recover your OS. – Tarun Aug 21 '13 at 6:53
