Need Help with Grub Recovery

Hello. First, I'll say that I'm a complete beginner and have just downloaded Fedora 26 yesterday. I installed it on my computer (not the one I'm writing on now), but made the mistake of pulling the flash drive out before rebooting after the installation. I was met with an error screen, and when I turned the computer off and back on, this is what I see:

Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.


From a bit of research, I was able to figure out that this is a fairly common grub problem and that it has a solution, but I couldn't quite understand what text I need to type since it seems like each situation is unique. I also learned that the response to the ls command has something to do with what I'm supposed to type. Here's the response I get to the ls command:

grub> ls
(hd0) (hd0,gpt7) (hd0,gpt6) (hd0,gpt5) (hd0,gpt4) (hd0,gpt3) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1)

Please help me figure out what to do next
