Hey Antergos Community,
So this is my first Linux experience and i’m semi ok with computers in general.
I have a laptop, where i first installed windows 8.1, and afterwards installed antergos. Everything worked fine so far and i used the GRUB bootloader to access both systems. My system uses the EFI-boot, with an own partition.
Sadly i had the stupid idea to create a new partition in Windows, which led to the following problem:
Whenever i now start my pc i get greeted with:
"Welcome to GRUB
error: unknown filesystem"
I actually figured out how to progress from here with the great help of google (Link: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/148041/recovering-from-grub-rescue-crash ) and i am actually able to start my old grub bootloader with no problems and boot into both of my systems from there. The commands i have to use to get GRUB on the screen are the following:
grub rescue> set boot=(hd0,gpt6) grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,gpt6)/boot/grub grub rescue> insmod normal grub rescue> normal
The problem for me is now: How can i prevent the grub rescue from appearing everytime when i reboot?
Things i have tried so far after more googling:
sudo os-prober sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
both work as a command and i thought they would fix my problem by repairing the GRUB, but the rescue still pops up everytime.
Do i need to reinstall GRUB on my system now? (I googled for that, but i am a bit overwhelmed with the EFI part of https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB#.22Firmware_setup.22_menu_entry_.28UEFI_only.29 - do i really need to do all that stuff, or will sudo grub-install /dev/sda work, which i saw on a lot of threads?)
Should i just remove my new partition from windows ?
So sadly i am a bit overwhelmed how to procede from here and i hope, that someone from this community can help me somehow or lead me towards a solution. I hope i explained everything in an understandable way, my computer expertise is not the greatest and i am actually somewhat proud to even have made it past the GRUB rescue screen.
Best regards, Nick
