I have a problem when I installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as secondary OS. I used windows 10 before and I want to make dual boot with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I already create 30GB free space on the disk and I already make USB boot too. I followed the steps to install Ubuntu and make one partition as swap and one as ext partition. I used "Something else" method in this case. But, when I installed it works well in the first copying and installing but when Grub2 package installed I have some error said like this :

grub2 error

I used HP laptop with 4GB RAM and I used windows 10 to make free space of partition. I also use rufus to make bootable from USB device.

Anyone please help me to solve this problem. Thanks before.

  • @roaima I'm not really sure if that same with my problem. Could you give me the best answer and the reason why the error could happen ? Thanks – Antonio Jun 2 '18 at 12:35
  • As you've described your situation, this is exactly your problem. You don't have a partition for Grub to install its bootloader into. – roaima Jun 2 '18 at 12:37
