Thanks for your input Laco, but didn't work for me,
this is what worked:
Do you have a live DVD or flash drive? If you do, boot from it and choose
try Ubuntu. Then open a terminal and type:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && (boot-repair &)
Press enter after each line. This will install Boot Repair. Launch it from
the menu and then select Recommended Repair
Instructions are at that web site. See Use Boot Repair.

I have the same issue. Somehow I messed up my loader and I always end up
on the entering rescue mode...grub rescue line. This has been happening
for some time now.
So to get around it when the motherboard splash screen comes up I hit F11
(or whatever other key gets you to the loader selection list) and select
which partition you want to boot from. Works every time. Obviously, this is
not a solution, it's a work-around but this way you can get back in the
computer assuming that your root and/or the home partitions are intact.

HELP, I got a big problem! I had 3 partitions, I deleted the one with
Mint, and now my ubuntu 16.04 wont' boot. get this error: no such
partition. entering rescue mode...grub rescue>
I researched online but, man this is way over my head. This is one thing
I found but I've learned the hard way not to do commands when you don't
understand what you're doing....like the post I followed to delete a
partition—which never mentioned loosing the boot info!!!
Working off boot DVD, I used gpart to delete the Mint partition, then
resized the ubuntu 16.04 to include that partition, but got a message that
to complete the resize might injure the boot info, so I clicked on undue
the resize. But, when I tried to boot got the grub rescue prompt.
anyway, there seems to be a lot of different ways to do this according
to the posts I have researched, all kinds of complicated commands etc that
I have no understanding of. I also will want to either delete or downsize
the partition with ubuntu 14 on it. I think part of the problem might be
that 16.04 was the last partition i added. On the gpart menu it is on the
right of the box/graph that shows the relative size of the partition....
Can anyone walk me through this? I really need my computer back! Sure
would hate to have to reformat the HD and reinstall everything!

Got this error message when I plugged in my ext back up drive. I've
been using this drive with Ubuntu for several years, never had this
before. Other drives with exfat still mount.
Ubuntu 16. anybody have a way to fix this without reformatting the
disc and loosing all the data on the drive? Thanks, charles
