Hi, I recently installed Fedora 29 with the latest live CD 1.2 on my computer and had everything set up how I wanted. But a few hours ago, I was installing Windows on another ssd on the same machine for my gaming needs and I accidentally deleted the 1.00 GB partition that contains /boot for fedora (there were three partitions: the small /boot/efi, an ext4 partition containing /boot and a big lvm2 that contains everyting else like /, /home, etc... How would I go about recreating that /boot partition from a live USB stick? (before you ask, it is completely gone, as it is marked as free space on the disk in gnome-disks)

If Grub still see the boot partition you can created and copy the files from the boot partition of a live USB so you boot. Not done this procedure before but it should work. I have done something like this to convert live system from non raid to raid.

If I were in your position, I'd backup all my user data first, then just reinstall Fedora alongside Windows. If you choose a different solution, you should still backup of your user data before you start.
