That would take disk space I don't have.

Are you sure? The largest / filesystem under this roof is 10.2G. Most are
much smaller. How big was your 13.1 /, and how much of it was used?

I put a 700 GB drive in this
computer several months ago, because I ran out of space for work stuff
on the Windows 7 partition.

The reinstall just completed and I'm back at the grub rescue prompt.

Installed to which partition, and on which partition(s) is/are Windows'? What
other partitions exist? Did number or size change via 13.2 installation?
Earlier and separately you suggested / was on both sda1 and sda6. Which
is/are correct? Usually Windows Vista+ get sda1 and sda2 at least. Having
Windows installed, and where it's installed, affects what needs to be done
WRT bootloader installation and operation.

You have a habit of providing so little information it is difficult to
impossible to give you the help you need. Has the low number trying to help
in today's thread escaped your notice? When in doubt how much information to
provide, choose more, not less. There is little clairvoyance to be found here.
