It fails on this line:

"grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-29-generic root=/dev/sda1" with
Unknown command 'linux'.


Earlier and separately you suggested / was on both sda1 and sda6

IIRC, the only time I mentioned sda1 was in reference to it showing up
in the boot menu.

Exactly what did/are you tried/trying to do when you see a grub> prompt?
Given the little information you have provided, I'm guessing the following
should get you booted if the / filesystem is sda6, you don't have a separate
/boot partition, and grub> is Grub2:

grub> set root=(hd0,6)
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda6
grub> initrd /boot/initrd
grub> boot

If Grub Legacy:
grub> root (hd0,5)
grub> kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda6
grub> initrd /boot/initrd
grub> boot
