    Grub rescue prompt

    I had a quad boot of OS, all linux, I deleted 3 of them and inadvertently deleted
    my boot partition. I did get running again using Boot repair {thanks YannBuntu}

    My question though is when the grub rescue prompt came up, i couldn't find any
    keyboard combination to do anything with it and i am sure that somehow grub
    can be restored at that point, What am i missing? TIA.

    Don't think you can install grub from the rescue prompt but once booted into your install, grub is easily reinstalled. else can be done from a live cd/usb/etc.
