Hey everyone!

I tried to install fedora on a secondary drive originally, but I couldn't get it to boot with grub2 on the main boot drive, and in the process I evidently messed up that drive, now I get grub rescue> when I try to boot into Win7 on that drive.

The ls result I get seems odd compared to what I've seen for others:

(hd0), (hd1), (hd2), (hd3)

I tried following a tutorial that addresses common issues with grub2, but there's always some sort of partition info from ls, of which I obviously have none. Where do I go from here? I'm completely clueless!

Check this one, or search this site for grub rescue. Plenty of people have asked for this and similar issues. Get the live DVD of your Fedora version and run the "rescue installation"...

Thanks for the tips. I had to wipe my drive and now I'm installing it on the same one as issues with that thankfully!
