Recovering Boot Partition

Tue Jan 02, 2018 11:07 am

Being a Linux noob, I did something quite dumb:
I wanted to format my external HDD to something other than fat32 with which it arrived. But I accidentally formatted my boot partition. 8-)
I immediately noticed my mistake, and for what it's worth I re-formatted it to fat32. I didn't delete it, just formatted it to
NTFS and then back to fat32.
Obviously my laptop doesn't boot. Is there a way I can save it without reinstalling budgie? I've seen many boot-recovery-tools out there, but I want to make sure I'm doing it properly...

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks
