I turned my PC on and I got the grub rescue prompt. So I have checked a number of threads and found the ls (hd0, gpt7) /boot/grub stuff. Which I tried all 7 combination including the alternate /lib/grub/i386-pc. With no success.

So here I am wondering if there is anything else to try.

Boot from an Ubuntu live disk by changing the boot-order in bios.That's what the 2nd method says. –  Avinash Raj Mar 7 '14 at 4:50

You shold be able to enter BIOS anyway. Hit Del or F2 before GRUB starts. –  Danatela Mar 7 '14 at 5:37
