I was running Windows 7 when I decided to delete some partitions belonging to an installation of Fedora. When I shut down Windows and returned to it, I found this error message:

error: no such partition

grub rescue

Desperately, I booted up my bootable flash drive version of Ubuntu 12.04 and searched Google for an answer which led me to this:

http://itsfoss.com/solve-error-partition-grub-rescue-ubuntu-linux/

I followed the tutorial up to the point where I came to reinstalling grub and got this zinger:

   ┌───────────────────────────────┤ Configuring grub-pc ├────────────────────────────────┐

   └──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘       

I am unsure as to whether I should proceed or what options I should take.
