Windows 7: BSOD booting up computer, error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>

18 Nov 2013   #1

windows 7 starter 32bit
BSOD booting up computer, error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>

how do i bypass the error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>. i don't have a windows boot disk or usb as it was installed online. i had a partition running ubuntu precise pangolin and it was read and write in windows computer management, so i formatted it (it was a partition of my internal hard drive) and then a blue screen appeared saying creating dump report or file. Then my computer shut down and is now not booting up past the grub screen, saying error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>. i don't even have an ubuntu iso available (because it's on my internal hard drive that is not booting up, i installed ubuntu from a usb and then i deleted those installation files) what i am basically asking is what has happened, if i can bypass the grub boot screen, and is there is any hope of fixing it?

You are using GRUB bootloader to boot windows in a dual boot environment.

What you need is to update GRUB. You may get some ideas here.

Also I will request Golden to have a look.
