Hello, is anyone familiar with grub? I could really use some help. I was attempting a update from 4.4 to 6.0 and I formatted a partition to grub. I'm not familiar with the command script and I'm stuck. Thank you in advance.

Hi formatmicro,

Can you please post some more details of the problem you are having? Which operating system are you using? Can you explain what you mean by you have "formatted a partition to grub"?

Thank you for taking the time to adress my issue. I origanally intalled Linux Mint (Sara) 18. I decided to install 4.4 Android x86 on to my laptop, when installing Android I was using a USB 16GB drive while prepping drives and partitions I changed the partition types of Linux to Linux Filesystem and Android to MBR (both marked boot) installation and continued to back out and reboot. I installed Android x86 to my internal 150GB hard drive. After the reboot my PC will only boot into Grub saying, root (hd0,0) partition unknown, format 0x80. When I attempt to use my USB it boots to black screen with only a flashing line as if I was typing. Grub has no kernel loaded, will not let me boot and I'm not familiar with it. Once again Thank You!

Do you have any other Linux DVD/CD or 'live' USB that you can boot the computer with?

 

Is Linux Mint still installed on another partition, or did you delete Mint before (or when) installing Android?

It was deleted I believe. I used Unetbootin to create a usb drive to install xubuntu and now it is saying "ISOlinux.bin is missing or corrupt and then automatically for a into grub.

Is Xubuntu installed to the computer's hard drive?

Is Android still installed?
