This is the menu.


Yesterday I installed Ubuntu with Unetbootin, when I installed it in a separate partition it worked fine, when I did apt update and then upgrade I disconnected it from the electricity.

The next day (today) I turned it on and the GNU GRUB menu that I showed appears, but when I start I get a 4-line message that explains what GNU GRUB is.

Can somebody help me?

  • Did you have a previous install? That is typical of you having an old grub that you now are booting, but new install put grub somewhere else. Makes difference if UEFI or BIOS. Lets see details, use ppa version with your live installer (2nd option) or any working install, not Boot-Repair ISO: Please copy & paste the pastebin link to the Boot-info summary report ( do not post report), do not run the auto fix till reviewed. help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair – oldfred Feb 23 at 21:35
  • i installed it from windows, i have never used linux – SciDroid Feb 23 at 21:43
  • So is this WSL - Windows Subsystem for Linux? Do not know about that or how it works. Best if you post exactly what you installed. Windows version, WSL version, Ubuntu version and what hardware you are installing into? – oldfred Feb 23 at 22:08
  • before i had WSL installed, but now i installed full Ubuntu – SciDroid Feb 23 at 22:37
  • That's not a grub menu. That's the grub shell, which suggests it wasn't installed (or configured) completely. Take a look at the grub documentation – Useless Feb 23 at 23:34
