I tried installing Ubuntu onto an external hard drive but upon boot-up I get an error. The error complains about an invalid external.
I tried re-installing my system in case I did something wrong during my original installation.
after re-installation it displays an error message that it cannot find the normal.mod file. I have tried using a live-boot disk and to copy the missing normal.mod file but the normal.mod file is in the correct directory, the system just can't seem to find it. I tried finding an solution but I am a novice with computers and not really acquainted with using the terminal. A step by step solution to fix the missing normal.mod error would be appreciated.
