I tried to install windows 7 in my Fedora 24pc but before installing windows I tried to partition my hard drive using tools available on Fedora. When I tried to reboot I get this:

Error: unknown filesystem
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>

After searching through the internet i tried these commands......

grub rescue > set boot=(hd0,msdos6)

grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/­boot/grub

grub rescue> insmod normal (after this line ,i am getting the error , grub rescue > unknown filesystem)

grub rescue> normal

Also I cannot access BIOS anymore.

How can I solve this problem? I just want to get my Fedora 24 back.

You will need to provide more information on how and what you changed with the partitioning. I would recommend booting a live image to see what happened.
