    grub server problem

    I have 3 partitions on my computer.
    1. Ubuntu Server 1
    2. Windows XP
    3. Ubuntu Server 2

    I deleted Ubuntu Server 1 and now when I boot up, there is no more grub2 menu. Instead I get a grub rescue.

    I tried re installing grub on Ubuntu Server 2 using this tutorial:
    I got to the last part when it generates a grub.cfg. I thought that solved the problem but when I reboot, I get back the grub rescue

    How do I get my grub menu back and boot normally?

    I also suggest Boot-Repair as kc1di did.

    Some others:

    Sometimes you can just manually boot:

    Manual boot:
    See post #10 by drs305
    grub rescue:
    ls # Do you see (hd0), (hd0,1) ? If so, run the next command. If you see (hd0,5), use that instead of (hd0,1) in the next command. If grub.cfg is good this just may work:
    configfile (hd0,1)/boot/grub/grub.cfg


    set prefix=(hd0,5)/boot/grub
    set root=(hd0,5)
    linux (hd0,5)/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5 ro
    initrd (hd0,5)/initrd.img
