I have a vaio laptop and it used to have installed windows 8 and Xubuntu 13.04 in dual boot, everything was working fine.
I decided to update my version of xubuntu 14.04 LTS mainly because the support for 13.04 is finished and LTS version have 3 years of support. What I did was to format the partition where xubuntu 13.04 was installed and install 14.04 in that formated partition. When I restarted my computer willing to start using my new system I got the following message:
error: symbol 'grub_term_highlight_color' not found
and I was not able to enter any OS.
I tried boot-repair from live USB more than two times and it did not fix the problem.
I tried to enter to my computer using super GRUB2 disk, however it does not apperar to work with UEFI active (besides super grub2 disk says it can) I only get the message "no operating system found".
If I boot super grub2 disk with UEFI disabled, super grub2 disk can not detect any OS,I also tried Rescatux distro, however, as of super grub2 disk, rescatux cannot enter when UEFI is active.
I tried boot-repair with the option of "restore EFI backups", after that I was able to boot on windows, but no grub menu appeared. I ran boot-repair again with no improving results
Here is the last Bootinfo report I got:
Do you have any idea of what is happening?
I really appreciate your help,
Hi and thanks for your suggestions.
I was able to enter my different OSes using rEFInd (secure boot disabled), however, after different tries I was not able to get a boot menu (either GRUB or rEFInd) to select an OS :(
I tried to install rEFInd in my hard disk, however, when booting it goes directly to windows.
I tried again boot repair, nothing happen.
I tried dpkg-reconfigure, nothing happen.
Here is the last bootinfo summary I got.
The only way for now to enter Xubuntu in my computer is using rEFInd USB with secure boot disabled.
Thanks for your help,
Any comment is appreciated
