I am currently dual booting Win7 and Ubuntu. I created a new partition, on my c drive, to install windows 8 on (i did not want to do the upgrade). I inserted the windows 8 cd and restarted my computer. no such partition/ grub rescue is all that comes up now. I loaded ubuntu from disk and did boot-repair. It did not solve my problem but I got the following output

Please let me know if anyone can fix this. I am lost.


You have no ext4 or ext2 partitions at all, but you do have 5 NTFS partitions. Is one of them where you installed Ubuntu? If it's /dev/sdc1 then you should follow these instructions to re-install grub.

It really is better to use an ext4 partition when you install Ubuntu or any other Linux distro.
