Hello everyone..
I accidentally deleted my ubuntu boot folder.

i need help please.

Boot into the rescue mode and see if you can reinstall the kernel. That should allow you to boot the system.

One bit of gratuitous advice - leave /boot alone! Once you are a "Linux Expert" that may not be necessary advice, but until then, leave well-enough alone... :-)

  1. Boot live CD
  2. Mount your system root partition
  3. Open terminal then reinstall Grub:

    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/path-where-it-was-mounted/ /dev/sdx

/dev/sdx your system root partition

Did you try to run the boot repair disk ?

Edit: sorry, this is 6 months old :) I guess the OP managed to boot.
