Boot process stuck at "grub>" prompt.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We were trying to update the partition ID using parted, and by mistake the partition ID of /boot partition was set to 8e (i.e. Linux LVM) and now GRUB boot loader is no longer able to load, it shows following error:

    grub> root (hd0, 0)
    grub> kernel /<tab key> and shows partition 0 "filesystem type unknown"
