I've been struggling with a problem for a few days now, and hope some of you can help me out. I'll just explain what happend breifly.
Well, I have an AMD E-350 APU HTPC, which I use for media center stuff. A couple of days ago I decided to install
XBMCbuntu on it, as I thought learning Linux could be fun. I ended up having so much trouble with sound driver, graphics driver, hardware acceleration not working and so on, that I decided to reinstall Windows again.
So I popped in the Windows DVD, formatted all "visisble" partitions, and installed Windows on the same drive as Linux used to be on.
When the installation reached the reboot part, the computer shutdown and the started up and gave me the message:
Loading Operating System ... error: unknow filesystem. grub rescue>
Now I don't know much about bootloaders nor Linux to be honest, but I thought it might have been some
ext partition which I didn't format when I reinstalled Windows, so I went into an Ubuntu Live CD, opened
gparted and left everything as unallocated space. Then I restarted the Windows installation, but same problem occured again.
At this point I've been googling pretty much non-stop, and I've pretty much lost track of what I've tried and what i haven't. I've run pretty much any imagineable bootable, GRUB/boot recover CD and still no luck :(
Here's a link to an Ubuntu Pastebin, I've got from one of the many attempted rescues, maybe it can help?: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6531541/
And please note that i'm fully aware that there's lots of people with a similar error on this page, and on google in general, but i've really tried almost anything that has been suggested in any of those threads, so i really hope you'll forgive me starting a new question.
Thanks a lot.
