When I use USB flash memory (Ubuntu 14.04 amd64) for booting my PC (win 7 x64), I get the following error:

error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found.
grub rescue>

But using this USB flash memory on my laptop (win 7 x64), grub loads correctly.

I read these questions but they didn't help:

Ubuntu server error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found. grub rescue>

error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found in ubuntu 13.10

error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found

I removed the hard disc from PC, yet I get the above error, at boot time with USB.

My PC's BIOS settings has not two booting options; EFI or Legacy.


I solved this problem by using a different method to make the bootable USB.

The best software for this is unetbootin.
