I have a Acer Travelmate P-643M with an i3 2370M. Now technically I should be successful in installing a 64 bit operating system on this machine but for some reason that does not happen.
Till two days back I had been using 12.04.4, the 32 bit version and it had it no issues. The system ran smoothly for over a year. However due to a project I had to change my system from 32 to 64. Earlier the error I got was the normal.mod not found error. I have checked the solution provided on this site for that question, but post entering those commands now my laptop boots to a GRUB page, which has the grub command line. I tried setting boot and prefix according to an answer but to no avail.
Also why did the normal.mod error say :
error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found? Shouldn't it be i386?
Where am I going wrong? Any ideas?
I've included the screenshot of
fdisk -l .
