I have a dual boot PC with Windows 7 and Ubuntu. I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 and then to 13.04 and since then I have not been able to boot because the PC goes into grub rescue with the error "File not found".
I have tried the following steps:
set prefix=(hd0,msdos5)/usr/lib/grub/i386-pc set root=(hd0,msdos5) insmod linux
I get error:
symbol not found : 'grub_realidt'.
if I do insmod normal, I get error
symbol not found : 'grub_disk_dev_list'
I have two partitions containing linux file system: (hd0,msdos5) and (hd0,msdos6). They were mountpoints for / and /boot respectively.
I have searched for this error, and found some "solved" threads. But all of them are using Live USB to get in grub prompt. I don't have access to one, and was hoping to be able to solve the issue without a flash drive.
Please help... Thanks in advance.
