Asked by conor hassett on 2015-01-31

hello
please help, you are probaly all familar with the grub rescue issue after installing 14.04, i tried a few of the online guides and even tried restore from a cd but grub rescue still comes up,
i have windows 7 and ubuntu 14.04,
im usuing an emachines e372, sata mode ide, quiet boot- disabled, network boot- disabled, d2d recovery- enabled
so im getting
grub rescue> ls (hd0,6)
(hd0,6): filesystem is ext2.
grub rescue> ls (hd0,6)/boot/grub/
./ ../ gfxblacklist.txt i386-pc/ locale/ fonts/ grubenv grub.cfg

p.s. there also seem to be an issue with the bios driver, none of the funtion keys are working (using an external key board.

Try the boot info script to get the details of the boot sectors and boot programs of you system.

i got boot repair and gparted to remove a bad sector , every thing back to normal
