What the balls happened.

OK, so, I finally got the install for Windows 10, and boom, it restarts into it's happy special circle with a percentage, explaining that it's this many percent done, I step away, and when I come back a couple minutes later... Boom:
Loading Operating System ...
Error: No Such Partition
Entering rescue mode
Grub Rescue> _
Whaaa? I got to the step where I released typing an "ls" command will list me partitions...
but trying to boot into any of those partitions and I get a:
"Filesystem is unknown."

Am I royally screwed? Can I get some help, please! thank you!!!

Yes, if you're wondering, I ran a dual-partition with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and a GNU boot screen, but that doesn't seem to explain why Windows 10 decided to go haywire on my stuff.

I think I know what happened, your default partition is Ubuntu and if you didn't know windows 10 restarts several times during the installation. Try manually booting to the windows 10 partition and see if it resumes.
