Deleted the swap partition by mistake

I accidently deleted the swap partition through Windows’ disk management and when booting into Manjaro, I encountered a grub error (unknown filesystem). I need to get back to my linux environment.

Boot a live ISO and recreate the missing swap partition with GParted or any other partitioning tool. Then readout the UUID of the swap partition, mount your / partition and set the correct UUID in your /etc/fstab file.
