I try to install Ubuntu 18.04 on a Lenovo Ideapad 320, but the installer always hangs at installing the
grub2 package. So I ran the installer with
ubiquity -b (no bootloader) and it installs fine. I thought this way I could install grub manually.
When I boot, grub drops to the
grub> command line prompt. I can boot using the following commands:
set root=hd0,msdos5 linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5 initrd /initrd.img boot
I tried getting a normal grub menu in many ways, but none seem to work. I ran
grub-update, I tried modifying the
/etc/default/grub configuration file, etc. But I keep getting the
grub> prompt. How do I get the menu?
Edit: This is what
/etc/default/grub looks like:
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
