Question Seeing minimal bash-like line editing is supported when booting to grub for lubuntu 20.4


I have successfully installed lubuntu 20.4 on unallocated space and grub is installed, I just have to change to ubuntu in boot options. unfortunately, grub says Seeing minimal bash-like line editing is supported. I don't know what to do because it is completely unusable and I cant get to lubuntu but I know it is installed. Any help would be appreciated.

Take a screen shot upload it to OneDrive, Google Drive, Pastebin (set proper permissions of course only the folder with that pic and not expose your whole drive ) or other sources, it would be easier for others to figure out what is on your screen.

Good luck!!!

You will might need to do a grub rescue, see this link: https://www.linux.com/training-tutor...-grub-2-linux/

Or try as Cordx suggested.


See if this one will help also:

You can boot your linux system through Super Grub2 disk, Download the iso from here (http://www.supergrubdisk.org/) and create a bootable USB

After successfully booting linux , reinstall grub-efi as follows :

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=debian --recheck --debug /dev/sda
update-grub

If you know what drive/partition lubuntu is on
Code:
configfile (hd0,?)/boot/grub/grub.cfg
the ? represents the partition number counting from 1, If it is on a different drive, drives count from 0.
Then once booted in open a terminal run if this is an efi system.

sudo grub-install
If not add /dev/sda, this may be different.

Thanks I think it is because I rebooted without removing the usb because after I removed it and it worked. I would however still learn about this issue so thanks again.

I understand the second part, but what does the first code mean. Is it for a terminal or a file location? thanks
