Was the grub updated recenlty? I can't boot

I have an acer aspire e 15. I have dual booted windos 10 and fedora 29. The last update i remember was kernel version 5.0.7. I cannot remember exactly if I installed updates a couple hours ago but now i cannot boot up. When i start the computer, the acer logo shows up, and then i get an error "cannot find entry ..." something. I could only read this much before it vanishes. So i inserted my live usb to find all my files safe. (Thank God).

I have an acer aspire e 15. I have dual booted windos windows 10 and fedora 29. The last update i remember was kernel version 5.0.7. I cannot remember exactly if I installed updates a couple hours ago but now i cannot boot up. When i start the computer, the acer logo shows up, and then i get an error "cannot find entry ..." (it is wrong. I have mentioned the correct one below) something. I could only read this much before it vanishes. So i inserted my live usb to find all my files safe. (Thank God).

Edit: I used my brains and recorded the boot of my computer. I get this message from the grub.:

System Bootloader not found. Initializing defaults.

Creating boot entry Boot0016 with label Fedora for file "\EFI\fedora\shimx64.efi".

Reset System

And then Windows boots

Reset "\EFI\fedora\shimx64.efi". Reset System

And then Windows boots

Edit: I found many of my bios settings were reset. For example Windows booted up the first time without showing grub. I went into my bios only to find that windows was the first in priority where grub should have been. Also, my laptop by default disables multi touch on trackpad. I had turned it on from the bios. But I was not able to use it. Then again, I went back to my bios and turned it on again and it works.
