Cannot boot from HD at all (dualboot with win7) Cannot boot from USB either (12.04 and win7), goes to boot: prompt, do not know what to do here, wants a kernel name, same for both Ubuntu 12 and Win7 usb drives.
At grub rescue prompt:
grub rescue> ls (hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) grub rescue> ls (hd0,msdos5)/boot/grub/i386-pc *bunch of mod files* grub rescue> set prefix=(hd0,msdos5)/boot/grub/i386-pc grub rescue> set root=(hd0,msdos5)/ grub rescue> insmod normal error: symbol not found: 'grub_divmod64'. grub rescue> insmod linux error: symbol not found: 'grub_realidt'.
These errors were not part of the instructions I found while googling and googling the errors have not led to solutions. I'm pretty novice with Ubuntu/Linux/Unix. I'm guessing the MBR is messed up or boot.ini is missing or i dunno.
