How do I repair this error message error: file '/grub/i386-PC/normal.mod not found grub rescue> ?


DVD and USB load before the system loads. Set USB as your preferred boot, with your USB and Ubuntu on it, reload your system. (Could be DVD drive?).

Grub loading stage 1.5.,Grub loading please wait,Then it say Error-18


Because Grub has to fit in a small space on the disk, there is no room for helpful error messages, but 'Error 18' translates as 'Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS'. In other words, your BIOS - which initializes hardware - is unable to handle a hard drive this large. Windows is able to boot because the Windows partition is at the start of the distro's disk, within the area handled by the BIOS. This is not a limitation of Linux, which hasn't even started to load, but your hardware. You would see the same problem if you tried to install two versions of Windows, say 98 and XP. There are a few ways to deal with this.

When I turn on my laptop I get a GRUB loading , please wait ... Error 22 What can I do ?


GRUB is the boot loader, it's corrupted. It can't be fixed without special disks so in your case the easiest way is to reinstall.

What is grub error 17? how to fix it?


Its GRand Unified Bootloader used in Linux OS.
Normally you get this error when GRUB is not able recognise the partition from which you are trying to boot the system. Make sure the boot partition on your system is recognisable by GRUB (such as EXT3).

You can try to restore the GRUB using the LIVE CD
  1. Boot From Live CD
  2. Open Terminal Window
  3. type >sudo grub
  4. then type : find /boot/grub/stage1
  5. you'll get something like: (hd0, 1)
  6. then type : >root (hd0, 1)
  7. type: > setup (hd0)
  8. >quit
  9. >exit
Remove the Live CD and reboot the system.


Please let me know if you need any further assistance.


Thank you for choosing Fixya

Hi Edward,

Grub is the Boot sector loader program used by many versions of linux. If you have a DVD/CD Flash drive or external drive attached to you computer, remove it and reboot. If that works, the computer was trying to boot from the removable disk. If it doesn't it would seem someone or something may have installed, or, attempted to install linux on your computer.

If this is the case you either need to complete the install so you can setup Grub properly to allow you to select windows or linux at startup or you will need to Zero Wipe the hard drive and re-install windows from scratch.

Feel free to comment back with your progress and I'll be happy to help you out further.

Ubuntu error 22


While in Ubuntu do:

sudo fdisk -l to find the drive you want to boot to.

On the command line type:
"sudo grub", this will give you the grub shell >

If the disk you want to install the MBR is sda* for instance, then type (at the grub prompt):
"setup (hd0)"

then type "quit" at the prompt.
