I recently installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 13.10 onto a USB hard drive using unetbootin(which used extlinux as the initial bootloader during install) and have been having problems where GRUB2 isn't loading when the USB drive is selected from the BIOS boot menu. During boot, if the USB drive is selected from the BIOS boot menu, I am left with a black screen.
The installation went well, and the system runs just fine, but I am unable to boot into it unless I use the GRUB2 from my Debian installation that's installed on my internal hard drive.
I have tried numerous times to purge and reinstall GRUB2, but have yet to be successful. I have tried both grub-install, grub-update(thinking that maybe the menu entries were broken), apt-get to purge grub(thinking that GRUB might be corrupt), as well as using dd to purge grub from my MBR entirely and then reinstalling it.
The USB hard drive is formatted with a single primary EXT4 partition and nothing else.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
