I've recently been dual booting Windows 8 and Fedora 20 (and one point Ubuntu). My Fedora kernel wouldn't load in GRUB one day so I decided to reinstall Fedora using a live USB (my laptop doesn't have an optical drive). Unfortunately when I was freeing up space on my partition I may of deleted something I shouldn't of, because now when I boot up the boot manager gives me only the Fedora GRUB boot option. I can't even access my BIOS or recovery mode. The only command that works on boot is F12 which brings me to a option-less boot manager.
I've been going through forums and forums to figure out what I may have done. but unfortunately I'm a bit new to Linux so I'm unable to pin point exactly what I've done wrong. I've installed a Windows 8 ISO on a live USB and the boot manager (and GRUB) won't pick it up. I'm at a loss. Luckily my new Fedora installation is working and I know my Windows partition is still intact since I'm able to mount on it and take files I need.
Here's my output for
