• Problem with GRUB after instaling the Windows 10 Creators update

    Hi Guys,

    I was always reading forum and finding the answers without posting but this time unfortunatelly I’m stuck with a problem so I would really apreciate Your help.

    When I tried to install the Windows 10 Creators Update (unfrotunatelly I have to use this system in work most of the time) on first reboot my Grub stopped to work and I see the error that Grub started the Rescue mode.

    Fortunatelly I found the solution for that and I’m using the following commands (after ls I found that gpt4 is my Linux root drive):
    set root=(hd0,gpt4)
    set prefix=(hd0,gpt4)/boot/grub
    insmod normal
    and this is working so I completed the instalation of Windows Update.

    Unfortunatelly I found that after the restart/power down I have to use the command once again. I googled a bit and found that I forgot to update grub entries which I did with following command:
    grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    Unfortunatelly after reset I still see the Grub Rescue … so I have to type commands again.

    So the question from me. Is there any easy solution than typing all the time same 4 commands so I will not have a problem with boot order ?

    Thanks for everybody who reached to this moment of this text.

  • I might be wrong (know nothing about Windows) but I could come up with 2 ideas:

    1. Install GRUB (from within the said linux OS
      grub-install /dev/sdx (replace x accordingly)
      and regenerate your GRUB
      grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    2. Use the boot repair tool

  • I really could be wrong here, but I don’t think Boot-Repair works in Arch systems, only in Ubuntu ones🙁

  • @A-User said


    No, take a look here…
    …“Can recover access to any OS (Windows, MacOS, Linux…) if your PC contains Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, OpenSuse, ArchLinux, or derivative.”.

    The point is that I myself am not sure if I m directing you to the correct way…

  • Thanks @anarch, I didn’t see that🙂

  • Thanks Guys but unfortunately nothing helped.

    I reinstalled the system and now I can see beautiful information that

    /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/normal.mod not found and boot is in rescue mode

    I think we can close this topic.

    Thanks once again for try of help.

  • I think you have overwritten your EFI partition. Or even worse your Linux partition.

    The safest thing when it comes to Dualbooting is Installing windows before Linux.

  • @izznogooood Hi,

    I can boot to the Antergos but have to use same commands that I provided above. Now it is just a bit different error. Both Linux and Windows works fine but I have to do a work arround to start Linux which I think is useless.

    Try this:

    Boot in to Antergos.
    Make sure you have the os-prober package installed.

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda

    Assuming /dev/sda is the drive your BIOS is booting from.

  • Will try after work and give You update :)

  • It solved the problem !!

    Thanks a lot !

    @Global-Moderators You can mark topic as Solved ;)

  • Hi!

    If you go to the bottom right corner, you should see “Topic Tools”. From there, I believe you yourself can mark this topic as Solved.
