Dual booting Ubuntu Went Wrong? (Stuck on Grub Screen)

Hi Guys,

I am new here and was searching for help online and though asking in a forum would help. I recently installed ubuntu (dual boot with windows 10) it booted fine in the first place however, after I shutdown my laptop turned it back on and now it is stuck on the grub loader screen, I can see ubuntu on there however when i press enter nothing happens. It kind of messed up both of my installations as I cannot even go back to Windows 10 see below images for the errors, so If i select Windows 10 it gives me the following error and if I go for ubuntu it gets stuck on grub screen :(

I tried following the tutorials below but they didn't help can anyone please shed some light on this as I did not have a backup. Thank you

At this point I think your only option is to insert your Ubuntu DVD / USB media and either try to repair Grub or reinstall Ubuntu and see if that works.

Exactly why I will only dual boot using separate drives with the OSs own boot loader on each drive.

Hi,

Inserting the dual boot flash drive that I made for ubuntu worked, (Thank you so much) I repaired the grub files/loader and I can go back to ubuntu but the windows as the same issue? Should I try to make a bootable drive of Windows and see if that can repair Windows?

You can try a bootable Windows DVD / USB and see if you can repair Windows.

If you are able to repair Windows boot loader you may not be able to boot into Ubuntu.
