I didn't edit the fstab, it became edited.You will have to be well versed in this and pick apart every partition on your machine and compare the output of "blkid" to the output of the /etc/fstab file. Editing the fstab file IS NOT recommended: unless you know what you are doing.
I don't ever edit the /etc/fstab file. The safest way to fix the problem is to use a Live version of G-parted.
When the boot partition can't be found (even if it is in place) it's misconfigured. When the boot partition along with the configuration file and the vmlinuz-(version- of- kernel)-generic (image of the kernel) is changed <OR> misconfigured the boot loader can't perform it's functionality to boot the kernel.
*The fstab file doesn't have the correct information because you compromised that when you renamed the uuid of the partition that you edited. *
A Few Questions:
*Is Linux and Windows on the same HDD?
- Did you try booting your pc with a Live USB of Linux and try to recover that way?
- What version of Linux did you install?
I am presently using a Live USB session. No option to recover. Boot Repair tries but never works.
I'm using Linux Mint.
Yes, Windows and Linux is on the same HDD.
