I have tried to install Lubuntu on a Dell inspirion mini for my sister, but I'm not able to boot it. I get the error message:
error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found. grub rescue>
I'm already searching a whole evening on it, but nothing seems to help. I followed different guides for solving problems that where very alike, but that didn't seem to help.
On a certain moment I had an other message when trying to start up:
GNU grub version 2.00-13ubuntu3 Minimal bash-like etc...
I tried to 'fix' that with boot-repair (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair), using the Lubuntu live USB that I also used to do the initial installation (and the second one, when I tried it again).
At the end I needed to install GRUB in the partition I wanted, but at each partition I selected, I only got the message "Are you certain you want to continue without installing GRUB? (Or something like that, didn't copy that one), so in the end I just said yes. Boot-repair then said I should be able to start-up normally now and in case I wasn't I should contact my favourite forum with the problem and give you the following link: http://paste.ubuntu.com/623364
