Hey everyone. I am fairly new to the linux operating system and I am trying to set up a server to host Plex. I bought a 8tb hard drive (This one to be exact) and re-partitioned it to a gpt partition table. then proceeded to install server and after a completed install and a reboot, I get:

error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
grub rescue>

It does not matter which version of server I install. 12.04 up to 18.04. results are the same.

I tried to look for the normal.mod file on all the partitions.

error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
grub rescue> ls
(hd0) (hd0,gpt3) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1) (fd0)
grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2)
(hd0,gpt2): Filesystem is ext2
grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2) /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod
error: file ' /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
grub rescue> ls (hd0,gpt2)/boot.

grub rescue>

It look like to me that the files too boot from grub are missing. I tried to install the same versions on a 640gb hard drive and its boots correctly. Im beginning to believe it has something to do with my hard drive. Does anyone know what the problem could be?
