Grub rescue

Grub rescue

Postby gqrodrigues » Fri Jun 07, 2013 10:27 pm

(My computer has Zorin in Legacy Mode and Windows 8 in UEFI)
After some days using both systems, I decided to create a new partition in FAT32, using the unallocated space in Windows.
But when I switched to Zorin, it shows the unknown filesystem grub rescue error.
Has my new partition taken space used by Zorin?
Should I reinstall Zorin?

Hi,

try "Boot repair" first, if that doesn't work, try pasting this command in a terminal:

sudo update-grub

and restart your PC and see if it is okay.

Well, I have tried Boot Repair and now I can't even boot from Windows.
Running UEFI:Windows boot manager has been blocked.
Running Legacy Mode: Zorin problem continues.
I think the best option is to format and install everything in Legacy Mode
