Question grub2 problem after install of mint

OK so I just installed Linux mint on my new laptop every thing seemed to install fine until after I rebooted and was brought to the grub2 screen. after using the ls command to bring up the devices when I try to see the contents of the hd's all that comes up is error: unknown filesystem and the last one just list efi/ .I have the USB with the install on it but I don't know how to boot it from grub. Any help would be very appreciated.

Hi, if you want to boot the from the USB device, tap F12 (for my Mobo) at boot (bios) to get a menu. select usb-hdd
