I had the following on my old notebook (doll):
error: no such partition. Entering rescue mode... grub rescue>
grub rescue> set cmdpath=(hd0) prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/boot/grub root=hd0,msdos6 grub rescue> ls (hd0) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) (hd1) (hd1,msdos1) grub rescue> ls (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos2): Filesystem is unknown grub rescue> ls (hd1,msdos1) (hd1,msdos1): Filesystem is ext2 grub rescue> set boot=(hd1,msdos1) grub rescue> set prefix=(hd1,msdos1)/boot/grub
grub rescue> insmod normal error: file `/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found.
When I specified some of the other partitions in boot and prefix, it says:
grub rescue> insmod normal error: no such partition
And in both cases the following says:
grub rescue> normal Unknown command `normal'.
Funny: I created an Lubuntu install usb, then changed the book order: move “USB device” one item up in order to book from the usb, but then I didn’t need the usb stick because it booted into initram where I simply said “fsck /dev/sda1” (as instructed), then said ENTER to every “fix?” question, and afterwards everything was back…
