I'm in trouble...

Was dual booting Parrot os with windows 10...

Created 100gb unallocated partition...

Flashed iso in usb pendrive made it bootable...

When first tried got error creating partition btrfs

Then i unboot pd and re flashed it again with iso parrot os...

Tried installing but it showed error at 50% and accidentally clicked somewhere else without reading error

I again did unboot pd and flash it again

Now this time i start installation text mode and completed installation...

It Sayed installation done... remember to eject bootable medium before restart...

I did that and before restart there was a loading screen that stuck to 60% saying that...

"Removin-packeges"

After that i restart pc till then to now...

Its in *GRUB RESCUE MODE*

tried everything...but didn't work

And also there is no windows boot manager option in *b
I know i did it all wrong but What can i do now?

I struggle to understand why you would even try and install Parrot, as a dual boot with 10
It is difficult enough for the inexperienced to install established Linux systems such as Ubuntu or Mint, or Puppy, as dual boots
I suggest you start here
https://docs.parrotlinux.org/trbl/trbl-grub/

and if that achieves no result, I suggest you try a repair from a boot on W indows 10 usb installation media.

Hopefully you will have taken the precuation of securing your personal data from the 10 installation, to an external drive or somewhere, so that if the answer is a clean install of 10, at least you have your personal data
Ideally the standard advice is always to create a complete system image on an external drive with the means of restoring that image

Did you install Parrot EFI mode

I was doing dual boot cause my friend suggested to...
Also i didn't take any kind of backup my bad i dont have any external device to store so i didn't about data....
I have live usb working parrot and by using chmod 777 im changing permission to copy paste files from it...
I am downloading windows 10...
But there is other problem too..
I accidentally formatted system reserved partition ext4 it used to be hpfs/NTFS/exfat...
Now it says Linux type

Your best option is to boot to live session and mount sda3
you should then be able to access your windows 10 data and copy that to a flash pen and then, as I doubt you will recover from this, start again with a clean install of 10
However this time leave a partiiton on the drive - on which to install a Linux based system
I recommend Linux Mint to you
https://linuxmint.com/

https://linuxmint-installation-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install.html
If you wish to try a repair of 10 first before you opt for the clean install then do so

However the 1000$ question is
I was doing dual boot cause my friend suggested to..
have you used Linux in whatever form
Try it on a Live session before you install it
You may find you do not like it, there is no point in taking the risks involved in setting up a dual boot unless you do like Linux
It is very different to Windows
