Hi, originally I have dual boot system on my laptop. Windows XP and Fedora 14. This morning I used a software to partition my hard drive and created a new drive F:(5GB). After I restarted the machine, the screen became:
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (636K lower /2094669k upper memory
[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB liosts the possible completions of a device/filename.]
grub>

Open in new window

Did I damage thes ystem? SOS!

No so far, try re-installing the fedora or possible repairing it.

I just worry that re-installing could damage everything.

Hi!

First, check your backup so it's up to date in case something would go wrong! If you need to save some files from the harddrive you can boot a rescue CD.
