In WinRE mode, you can repair your system according to the step-by-step guidance.

Step 1: Under the Choose an option tab, click the Troubleshoot button.

click Troubleshoot

Step 2: Click Advanced options. In the pop-up window, choose Command Prompt to fix BCD files.

Further Reading: Reasons for No Such Partition Grub Rescue Windows 10

You may ask me what the specific factors are causing such a problem on your computer. Here we will give a detailed analysis of this error to you.

1. Generally speaking, the most common reason for this error is a misconfigured boot loader file. While installing Ubuntu in Windows, a part of Grub lives in the Master Boot Record (MBR), and the other parts live in the Linux boot partition.

This means that although the Ubuntu partition is deleted, Grub is still in MBR. In addition, the active partition is not correctly set. As a result, you will receive the error of "no such partition grub rescue" during your Windows 10 operating system startup.

2. When resizing Ubuntu partition,UUIDis modified, so that Grub can't read the boot information.

3. When reinstalling Ubuntu system, you may install it to a new partition. Although the original partition has been formatted, you haven't reinstalled Grub 2.

4. While restoring to Ubuntu 8.X, the Grub is version 1. So, Grub 2 is damaged.

Suggestion: Back up Your PC to Avoid System Breakdown

After fixing Windows 10 error no such partition, it is better to back up your operating system so that you can restore the PC to a previous state in case you face any system issue.

To do this work, we suggest using professional Windows backup software, MiniTool ShadowMaker since it enables you to back up your OS, files & folders, partition or the entire disk within simple clicks.

User Comments :

The other day I was trying to extend my root partition of Ubuntu which I dual boot with Windows 8. The partition extension was successful except that I screwed up the Grub configuration. When I booted in my laptop after the partition changes, I was welcomed by the Death Screen of Linux saying:

error: no such partition
grub rescue

After googling a bit, I found this mega thread on Ubuntu forum that helped me. But since it is a very complicated thread, I have re-written the tutorial so that one can follow it easily. So there are some assumption and some requirements to fix the error: no such partition grub rescue problem.

Requirements and presumptions:

  • You must have a live CD/DVD/USB of the same version of OS
  • You must have internet connection
  • You are dual booting Windows with Ubuntu (no Wubi installation)
  • You do not have a separate /boot partition

Now lets see how can we rescue the grub here.

How To Fix: error: no such partition grub rescue

We’ll be using chroot to rescue grub. The whole concept is that since grub configuration files have been deleted or corrupted, it needs to be re-installed. And using the live CD of exact OS version, we can install the grub configuration again. It will delete all the changes (if any) you have made to the grub.

Please follow these steps to easily fix grub rescue problem in Ubuntu (or other Linux distributions):

Step 1: Know you root partition

Boot from live CD, DVD or USB drive. Try Ubuntu from live disk. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and use the following command:

Here, you will see the drive name and partition number. It should look like sdXY. Where X is the drive letter and Y is the partition number. Usually it should be like sdaY.  You have to recognize the partition where root has been installed.

Step 2: Mount the root partition

Once we have got the partition where root has been installed, we’ll mount the root partition where Ubuntu has been installed. Use the following commands to mount it:

Replace XY with appropriate values.

Step 3: Be the CHROOT

Once we have the partition mounted, next step is to mount certain items in preparation of the chroot. Run the following commands one by one:

If the above commands ran successfully, you’ll see [email protected]:/# in the terminal indicating that you are in chroot mode.

Step 4: Purge Grub 2 packages

Now when we are in chroot environment (you can think of it as if we are behaving as root for the mounted partition)., time to get rid of the Grub 2 packages but before that lets update the repository.

While removing the grub, you’ll see a strange screen asking if you want to remove Grub 2 packages. Press TAB to select Yes. It will be highlighted once selected. Press enter to proceed.

Solving Error no such partition grub rescue in Ubuntu

Step 5: Re-install Grub packages

As we deleted the previous Grub, we deleted the messed up settings as well as any favourite settings stored in it. Now we’ll install a new and fresh Grub. Few things to keep in mind before you go on with the command to install the Grub.

  • While installing the new Grub, it will ask you to add extra kernel options. Just press TAB to go to OK and press enter to continue.
  • It will bring you the installation notes. Press Tab to OK followed by enter and continue.
  • When it presents with you the device option (to ask on which partition should it install Grub), choose the option in the format of sdX. DO NOT select the drive partition in 4 letter format i.e. sda4 etc. When you select the partition,  it should have an asterisk (*) before it like [*] sdX. If it does not, highlight (with tab) and press SPACE to select it. Tab OK and press enter.

It should look like this:

Now when you taken all those things in mind, use the command below to install the Grub.

Step 6: Unmount the partition:

Fix #2: Manually configuring the active partition

A very common cause for this error to show up is not having the correct partition set as active.

Use diskpart from the command line to set the correct partition.

  1. Execute the following commands to see a list of all partitions on your disk: diskpart list part

    Press after each command.
