Hi there,

I'm sorry I don't understand any of what you say. Well, I understand every word, but it doesn't make sense to me.
Okay, you may not be an expert and maybe lack some knowledge, but yet you'll have to supply more information for someone to help you.

At what stage did this happen? During boot, before Ubuntu or Windows even started?
Please give the exact wording of the message and the circumstances.

To answer the question in the thread title, which is the only one I really understand:
GRUB isn't really a Linux command. It's the boot loader (or boot manager) that Ubuntu uses. Usually it doesn't make much trouble, it simply works, so that most people arent ever bothered with it.

If you do encounter trouble with GRUB, you've got to be more talkative.

What version of Ubuntu are you running?

Do you see a grub> or grub-rescue> prompt?
I am unfamiliar with that error message. You will need to post the exact wording.
