How To Troubleshoot When System Drops Into GRUB Rescue Shell?

One of my Linux servers (RHEL 7.5) dropped into grub rescue shell and had failed to load the operating system. So, I was troubleshooting it and discovered a few steps which could help anyone who is in need, hence, I decided to write this post in my blog site. This post talks about step by step procedure to recover such a Linux system and boot normally.  This is tested and re-produced on a virtual system running on VMWare Workstation.

I’m going to document each step with screenshots in this post which would help anyone who wish to recover such failed system.
