Okay. I think I didn't understand what you were describing in the first post. I thought you meant that you were seeing the GRUB boot menu in black and white instead of with the graphic splash behind it. I believe anyone reading only your first post would think that. But now, I think you meant when you boot from the hard drive, it stops booting at a grub> prompt. Different matter.
First, I confess that I don't really know what you've done. Sorry. Second, if you successfully installed Fedora on the hard drive, then the GRUB boot loader is busted.
If the /boot and /boot/grub folders on the hard drive system have the usual contents (kernel, initramfs image file, grub stage image files, the stage2 file, the splash file), then maybe you just need to re-install GRUB for the hard drive system. I guess you want it in the master boot record. If so, then boot something (a boot disk, rescue disk, the USB pendrive, a Super Grub Disk, something) and do the job.
If you think what I just said is accurate but you need help with re-installing GRUB for the hard drive system, then I'm sure help will come when you return and ask for it.
P.S.: I think you should download the Super Grub Disk (easy to find with Google). Know why? Because it comes in a pendrive version (there must be some reason you installed from a pendrive). And also because you can use the Super Grub Disk to attempt to emergency boot the hard drive Fedora system (!LINUX!
in the Quick Menu). If it is capable of booting, then the Super Grub Disk can boot it. If that works, then you can reboot with it again and use it to re-install GRUB in the master boot record (if that is what you want). For that, chose GRUB => MBR & !LINUX!
in the Quick Menu. Lastly, the Super Grub Disk is a handy utility that everyone using GRUB should possess anyway.
