I install Elementary Os 5.1 in HP pavilion notebook. after installing HP Notebook enter grub rescue mode and does not find "error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found"
After fresh Hera install and reboot, I can't boot and get same error:
error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found.
Entering rescue mode...
What I did to solve it:
- Boot again with USB install stick ("Try Elementary" option).
- From a terminal console, create the missing folder ( /boot/grub/i386-pc ) on the target disk.
- Install grub.
Something like this:
$ sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt ( in my case, /dev/sda3 is my root / partition ) $ sudo mkdir /mnt/boot/grub/i386-pc $ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
reboot. That's all. Working.
When installing, the wizard asked me to create an EFI partition. So, I tried WITHOUT and then WITH EFI partition. Either case, I get same error (I just keep a small partition in the first sectors of the disk, about 200MB, which I toggle from FAT32 to EFI type).
