I have successfully expanded the ElementaryOS partitions and moved them around. Both Win10 and ElementaryOS load up but I get this message when I try to boot into Elementary.

In the BIOS settings I have enabled legacy bios option and hit F12 Key(Asus) to get into Elementary, otherwise it doesnt show the elementaryOS option and gets into windows directly.

I get the grub rescue screen with the normal.mod not found message and I use the following commands and it loads ElementaryOS

 set boot=(hd0,gpt6)
 set prefix=(hd0,gpt6)/boot/grub
 insmod normal 

Now when go into /boot/grub/i386-pc I do find the normal.mod

I was playing around with GParted when I got this message and I was trying to grub-install and I wasnt sure what the device to use is

lsblk returns the following :

sudo grub-install /dev/nvme0n1

Installing for i386-pc platform. grub-install: warning: this GPT partition label contains no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible. grub-install: warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged.. grub-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.
