I am currently running an older distribution of Ubuntu. I attempted to create a live Windows USB drive and booted from my Ubuntu machine. When I attempted to boot back into Ubuntu I am greeted with "unknown filesystem" and I'm launched into the grub rescue.
I've tried locating the drive that contains my Linux distribution but when I "ls" I only see (hd0), (hd0,msdos5), and (hd0,msdos1). I have attempted to set the root and prefix of all of these drives and when I input the command "insmod normal" after "set prefix=('drive')/boot/grub I get the "unknown filestem" response.
I am very novice when it comes to Ubuntu and Linux so I apologize in advance if I'm simply missing something remedial and for the horrible formatting but I am at the end of my wits. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
