you have deleted everything, now grub don't know that where to boot , where is the kernel !its config files are also deleted. You have only MBR records left hence you are seeing grub prompt.

So I hope you got the anwer.

First of all why did you give a newbie in ur organization root access?

And grub is installed in stages one on mbr and the other in the /boot/grub which is now deleted.
