[SOLVED] need to boot in legacy, then get stuck in grub rescue

Post by NoHo Hank »

The dualboot w10 + 21.1 cinn worked very nice. To get a usb-wifi working had to change the BIOS secure boot in disabled/ legacy.
Now it doesn't boot: can't get across

Code: Select all

grub rescue

How fix this???

Obvious thing to try is restore the old bios settings.

Agree with that, problem BIOS doesn't open. Tried many times. Can't reach it.

Code: Select all

error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found.
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>
Is there not a way to liveboot and change the grub???

UPDATE kb key was broken, with another kb BIOS is reachable. But point is we need to install this tp-link ac1300 mini wireless mu-mimo usb adapter

As I understand, secure boot has to be disabled in bios. Not to change to bios mode. After disabling secure boot if problem persists, open a new thread in networking section.
