I'll go into deep details so you can understand what's going on exactly.
I've been using Ubuntu and I wanted to experience different distros. On my PC, it wasn't dual-booted, I had only Ubuntu and nothing else. I just had one primary partition which was Ubuntu. There was no exteneded partitions whatsoever. Just to clarify: One partition exist which is primary. I tried to create new primary partition so I could install other distro over Ubuntu partition and Windows 8 to second primary partition that I just created.
At first, it didn't let me create new one which ıs I believe because of all the space was used by the first and only partition. So i deleted it. There was no partitions left. I created 2 new ones. It said changes will apply after reboot. I rebooted and what i got was grub-rescue screen. I actually was expecting Ubuntu to open but as I thought again, it didn't make sense because i deleted it and created 2 new partitions which were empty. (This part is my opinion, I am not sure if it is the reason.)
On grub-rescue screen, I got this this:
error: attempt to read or write outside of partition. Entering rescue mode... grub rescue> _
I tried everything on the web so please don't type this solution because it doesn't work.
grub rescue > ls (hd0) (hd0, msdos9) grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos9) grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos8) grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos5) # suppose this is linux grub rescue > ls (hd0,msdos5) grub rescue > set root=(hd0,msdos5) grub rescue > set prefix=(hd0,msdos5)/boot/grub grub rescue > insmod normal grub rescue > normal
When i type insmod normal it says "error: no such partition".
I don't actually want to rescue Ubuntu as you know, so if i can delete both partitions from grub rescue screen, I believe I can install other distro. When there is no partition, it possibly creates its own partition. Then I try to create second primary partition and again I get the grub rescue error and so on and on. (just kidding)
Extra information : I created partitions to have equal space which are both around 250 gb.
Any help is very very very appreciated. I had been trying to fix it all day long yesterday and I got sick today because of stress.
