- Windows 10 upgrade led to grub rescue 5 answers
Windows 10 + Ubuntu 16.04 LTS dual boot on a Lenovo Laptop.. after getting nagged about an update... I have been dumped into the grub rescue screen
and a lot of the help for dual boot linux users seemed to rely on
ls showing you a valid partition.. none of the partitions I am seeing are returning as valid file systems
grub rescue> ls (hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) grub rescue> ls (hd0,msdos5)/ error: unknown filesystem.
I am told I should grab a USB live stick.. boot in .. but a little bit uneasy since most of these walkthroughs are from 2015 & seem to get people stuck..
can someone nail down exactly what is the proper procedure ..
I tried to utilize the boot-repair utility, used the default repair.. shutdown and restarted.. didn't work, still seeing grub rescue and the same partitions as before
UPDATE 3 Performed the quick scan, my files are seemingly there.. but when I do the deep scan I get this warning
Leaving everything marked for deletion.. in my experience I need to select the partition with the boot file in the root dir to be bootable, and unmark for deletion all the rest...
