Cannot Boot to USB after installing Lubuntu

Postby bcinteractive » 2017-11-14 07:56

Hi,

I have a fairly new Acer laptop (Intel core i5). I used MultiBootUSB which has Lubuntu and System Rescue CD.

The laptop come installed with an Acer branded linux which I can't seem to run any desktop and only shows command prompt.

I set BIOS to boot using legacy. I turned on Boot select option. Inserted USB Boot and successfully booted normally. I chose Lubuntu and installed the OS. After installation, I can run Lubuntu fairly okay.

Now my problem is -- I can't now boot using MultiBootUSB -- when I boot here, it resulted to the grub prompt only (which I don't know how to use) instead of the usual menu where I can choose what os to boot to.

I ask this here because this doesn't seem to belong to any specific topic (except if I ask Acer which I doubt I can get any useful info re Linux related issues). Also because I'm pretty comfortable asking questions here.

Any input is appreciated. If my question does not make sense, please let me know what other info I need to place.

Thanks.

So , where does Debian come into all of this ?
"What we expect you have already Done"

Before doing anything, read the Debian documentation:

"Something to be aware of: Debian is a core or source distribution. This means there are many Debian-based distributions. THEY ARE NOT DEBIAN."
