What have you done before this happens? Trying to remove any partitions? or adding/deleting any partitions?

For whatever reason, grub cannot find its files. If / and /boot partitions are still available, what you need to do is to re-install grub. You can do it using Fedora installation DVD rescue mode or a live Fedora.

When using DVD rescue mode, it automatically mounts your Fedora partitions under /mnt/sysimage. Then you can:

chroot /mnt/sysimage grub2-install /dev/sda

If using Live disk, you should manually mount your / partition somewhere (I assume you'll mount it under /mnt/), and mount /boot partition under it (e.g. /mnt/boot). Then you can run:

grub2-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
