View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub Error: No Such Disk

May 11th, 2010, 04:44 PM
Hello all,
Firstly, I'm ubuntu-naive so things may need to be explained painfully slowly. Secondly, I tried doing a search for similar problems but I had a hard time following the solutions so rather than just jump on another thread I figure i'd start a new one.

I am trying to move on from XP and tried setting up 9.10. I did the LiveCD; followed the installtion prompts and installed, and restarted. Following restart I get the following;
GRUB loading.
error: no such disk
grub rescue>

I've tried doing the boot info script lines but I keep getting "unknown command sudo" msgs.

I can't get beyond this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated and please let me know if I need to provide any more details. I'm sure this has been beaten to death but thanks for your patience as I try and convert to ubuntu. Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply.

Maybe its my ignorance, but the link you posted in the body of your message doesn't seem to answer my question or solve my problem. Can you clarify what you meant? or maybe you posted the wrong link.

I've also done a bit of reading on here and yet to find an answer
