Here are a couple of things you could try.
First, there is a grub rescue floppy disk which should help you fix your grub problems. You might need sighted assistance to run it. I forget the name
, but you can google it.
Second, in the old days, we were able to copy the vmlinuz image to a floppy with dd and boot from it.
Third, when grub doesn't boot successfully, you can get into a shell prompt. This allows you to use many of the normal shell commands to help determine
what went wrong. In particular, you can mount devices and move/copy files. Again, you won't have speech.
Finally, save yourself from further headaches and trash the machine.
