    <GRUB rescue prompt> <Lubuntu> <2006 Desktop>

    Good news! The HP desktop booted from DVD with Lubuntu ISO! However, it was not installed just yet, but I decided to launch GPARTED and am attaching the screenshot. The partition I was trying to create with "fdisk" for LFS is showing there as "unallocated". Do you think my partitions can be...

    Hi @atanere, above is the output of the commands you asked. Also, after issuing "insmod normal" and getting the output shown in one of the screenshots above, then typing "normal" returned "Unknown command 'normal'" And sorry for my ADD (its getting worse...

    First screenshot happened once when turning computer on. It was the first time it happened this way. Second screenshot after turning off and on again. Showing the commands suggested in Carla's article. As modules "normal" and "linux" did not seem to load, TAB autocompletion did not work...

    Hey Friends, thanks for the encouraging words :D. I should be able to report back here at the end of the day. Most likely with new screenshots.... stay tuned if you will. Ah, @atanere, I have no idea why I am in RAID mode, I remember it was SATA before. I miss SATA.

    Hello friends, still did not have time to work on the GRUB issue. Will report later. Hey Chris, yes it is me. Cheers! I can only say that I think it is my issue with GRUB that made my BIOS not show other booting options. Installed (actually downgraded from "normal" Ubuntu) few years back...

    Hi @atanere and thanks for your reply. Booting from Live DVD did not work for me, so I will go with your 2nd option. My problem with booting from DVD is that my BIOS only gives me the options to boot from floppy or hard drive, but not CD/DVD or USB drives. I hope I did not misuse fdisk, at...

    Hello! Is it possible to run <inxi -Fxs> from the GRUB rescue prompt? My computer only lands on it after turning on... it happened after I tried to create a new partition using fdisk. Now I am stuck with it and desperately needing to get my Lubuntu back on track. Thanks for any help. :)
