Hi there,

I've messed up a bit and now can't boot Fedora.

I've deleted SWAP partition and resized root (sda5) partition because I was lacking space. resize was sucessful (data is accessible), however now I cannot boot Fedora.

While trying to fix it I think I did even more mess. I changed etc/fstab to new root UUID I tried grub2-install and lately grub2-mkconfig

Here's the result from Boot Info Script

It suggests that Grub2 (v1.99) is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 1 of the same hard drive for core.img, but core.img can not be found at this location. but I cannot find a way to fix this

Please advise

did you remove the swap partition from fstab before remove it and resize? if not that was your first issue, what you did after that screw up everything.

There is no /grub2/grub.cfg in Fedora. And other wrong things in your log. How did you resize everything in first place? Then, how did you try to reinstall grub2, with details?

where is the answer? if you post answer, asking for more information, that should have been done in comments, not as an answer, so if someone sees this post, they do not waste time looking for the answer.
