I am not able to start the operating system. Whenever I try to start the operating system it shows the following error:
file /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod not found Entering rescue mode... grub rescue>
I have ubuntu on my pc along with windows 8.1. How can I resolve this problem?
I tried installing Ubuntu 14.04 onto my computer which was preloaded with windows 8.1. My goal was to make this a dual boot.
I primarily followed the instructions on this link: http://www.everydaylinuxuser.com/2014/05/install-ubuntu-1404-alongside-windows.html.
I accidentally skipped step 5, which was turning off secure boot, and is most likely what led to my current error. Ubuntu installed on my computer but I was unable to run it past the live session which prompted me to try out Ubuntu and/or install it again. But now I can't even get there.
In frustration, I removed my flash drive and that is when I arrived at this screen, which I can't seem to get out of. (can't boot into neither Ubuntu nor Windows)
If helpful, entering the command 'ls' on the grub rescue mode prompt outputs: "
(hd0) (hd0,gpt 12) (hd0,gpt 11) (hd0,gpt 10) (hd0,gpt 9) (hd0,gpt 8) .... (hd0,gpt 2) (hd0,gpt 1)"
'set' outputs: "
cmdpath=(hd0) prefix=(hd0,gpt10)/boot/grub root=hd0,gpt10"
These are pretty much the only two commands that work (that I know of). I've tried things like, 'quit', 'exit', 'lsmod' (I saw this might be useful on a different post), but none have worked.
