    Issue With Getting Lubuntu To Reboot

    In a (successful) attempt to increase the performance of an old laptop by changing the operating system, I downloaded Lubuntu, installed it and deleted Windows.

    The Lubuntu version I downloaded is 20.04

    When attempting to reboot it or shut it down to later turn it on, rather than taking me to the login screen, it takes me to, for lack of a better description, the basic GNU GRUB command screen.

    Through some research I discovered when entering a certain sequence of lines I can then reboot. These can be seen in the attached image below.

    How do I void having to type these in every time I reboot or start up the laptop so that it just takes me to the login screen?

    Thanks

    P.S. If the image is too small I can post a link that can redirect to the image in higher quality

    haydnliehs; Welcome to the forum

    Hummm ..

    Appears the kernel can not find the boot config file on it's own.
    As you can boot with grub speak "(hd0,2)", then we know where that config should be,
    We can beat on this manually and attempt to fix
    OR
    see if the package manager will fix.
    Might try re-installing grub from the booted system:
    Code:
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    If errors we need to see all in context. Post them back - between code tags-

    else:
    Want to take the learning adventure then we need to see what grub has for it's current config.
    post back then:
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -lu
    sudo blkid
    cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    ubuntu
    fixable
