I was working on my Windows PC with Xubuntu 17 running in a virtual machine (VMware Workstation) when there was a very sudden power loss. The Windows host machine booted back up normally, but now the VM just boots to this:
GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta3-4ubuntu7.1 Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions grub> _
I found this Ubuntu Forums article, but I cannot seem to make the steps work for my VM (perhaps they aren't exactly applicable..?).
When I enter
ls at the
grub> prompt it shows this:
...so I try these commands:
set root=(hd0,msdos1) set prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub insmod normal normal boot
Boot it just returns:
error: you need to load the kernel first.
Any help greatly appreciated.
