    Linux Server always booting to grub rescue after install

    Hey everyone. I am fairly new to the linux operating system and I am trying to set up a server to host Plex. I bought a 8tb hard drive (This one to be exact) and re-partitioned it to a gpt partition table. then proceeded to install server and after a completed install and a reboot, I get:

    error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
    grub rescue>

    It does not matter which version of server I install. 12.04 up to 18.04. results are the same.

    I tried to look for the normal.mod file on all the partitions.

    error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
    grub rescue> ls
    (hd0) (hd0,gpt3) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1) (fd0)
    grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2)
    (hd0,gpt2): Filesystem is ext2
    grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2) /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod
    error: file ' /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
    grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2)/boot.

    grub rescue>


    It look like to me that the files too boot from grub are missing. I tried to install the same versions on a 640gb hard drive and its boots correctly. Im beginning to believe it has something to do with my hard drive. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    Re: Linux Server always booting to grub rescue after install

    I used a linux ubuntu desktop live session and used GParted to look at my server filesystem

    it looks like this:

    Partition File System Size Used Unused Flags
    /dev/sda1 grub2core.img 1.00MiB -- -- bios_grub
    /dev/sda2 ext4 7.28TiB 60.10GiB 7.22TiB
    /dev/sda3 linux-swap 975.00MiB. 0.00B. 975.00MiB

    looks like the grub partition is there. Why is linux booting into grub rescue?
