Bad Grub in Kubuntu 12.04

Posted by Renk81 on Jul 30, 2012

Just loaded Kubuntu 12.04 on a friend's computer. Fresh clean, over everything install. Runs Great, except for the GrUB.

Goes as follows:
>Power-on.
>GrUB, comes up. It is completely unreadable, half black half gray screen.
>timer runs out, OS comes up normally.

How do I fix this so GrUB is usable, or ignored all together at boot?

Level 9 Hellbound​ I would try the following:
-Boot from the LiveCD
-Open terminal and type sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt (or whatever your sda is named)
-sudo grub-install /dev/sda --root-directory=/mnt
-sudo reboot
In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary... come again?

Level 2 Why don't you try to reinstall or repair the GRUB from the Live CD?
