Error: symbol ‘grub_term_highlight_color’ not found

Entering rescue mode.

After that, I have solved the error by doing some study on it. But badly the solution is too confusing and complex for newbie ubuntu user. So this post for newbie user how they can easily solve that problem.

You have to boot your computer from live CD/DVD or bootable pen drive and then choose ‘Try Ubuntu’ option once you got ”Try Ubuntu  and Install Ubuntu’ option. Then run this command in your terminal

Once this linux command is executed then a box will appear called Boot Repair. Here you have to select ‘Recommended repair’

It will take some time and finally you have to reboot  your machine. This is the easiest solution as I know.
