When the machine is turned on I get a black screen with:
GNU GRUB Version -12 ubuntu1
Type in "boot"
Get "error:you need to load the kernel first"
tried boot repair and got these messages
2)GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-Boot partition (>1MB, unformatted filesystem, bios_grub flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again.
Alternatively, you can retry after activating the [Separate /boot/efi partition:] option.
