  2. [ubuntu] Re: Grub 2 Error: file 'boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found

    Re: Grub2 Update Stops UEFI Dual Boot

    Most UEFI with Secure boot on do not allow USB boot. As that is then a security issue.
    Again if UEFI updated it reverts to defaults. So you probably have to go into UEFI and turn on full USB support...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Mac Mini resolution out of range at grub and desktop enviroment

    From grub menu use commands to get to grub's terminal and run this. Grub may not see same video as system.

    vbeinfo

    Then uncomment gfxmode and change to one of values shown by command above.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Mac Mini resolution out of range at grub and desktop enviroment

    If you look at grub.cfg it has several places where video or font are set.


    And you set gfxmode in /etc/default/grub



    You can uncomment the gfxmode and change to the X by Y setting that you...

    Re: Grub2 Update Stops UEFI Dual Boot

    UEFI updates may reset UEFI to defaults. UEFI does remember some settings. Back with BIOS, all settings were reverted to defaults and you had to redo them.
