Fix Grub Rescue Prompt

Try Fast Read

Check for your partition using ls command
it should return (hd0,msdos1) and such other partition
you need to find the linux partition for that do ls(hd0,msdos1)/
then if you see the linux directories, you got your linux partition
now do the following
hdx=hd0 or hd1
y=msdos0 or msdos1 your linux partition you found above
$set prefix=(hdx,y)/boot/grub
$insmod (hdx,y)/boot/grub/linux.mod
$insmod part_msdos
$insmod ext2
$insmod gzio
$set root=(hdx,y)

now run “ls (hdx,y)/boot” command to find the proper vmlinuz and initrd version, x and y are from above
Then run:
$linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-1-686-pae root=/dev/sdXX ro
$initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-1-686-pae
Now you’ll boot into Linux, once booted you can fix the the GRUB with standard grub-install /dev/sda and then grub-mkconfig
