I am currently in Windows 10 which is shared with Kubuntu 14.04

 

As I logged in to that particular laptop. into Windows 10. it immediately went into one of those rather large updates where it states the computer will start and turn off several times. It got to approximately 25% download when the screen went black with the following:

 

error: file '/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/normal.mod' not found

Entering rescue mode...

grub rescue> _

 

Reason for concern or let it keep running. Approx 20 minutes has elapsed with the "error" msg on the black screen.

 

Thank you.

Windows 10 probably borked the grub loader. You should ask this question in the linux forum.

this sadly can happen.The best thing to do is to make sure windows and linux dont share the boot partition

As the Op has solved the issue in another thread I am closing this one to avoid confusion.
