    My investment into your services has not gone unfulfilled with non-stop excitement. I wish you the best of luck in getting the GRUB issues resolved! I'm not joking, I I don't care what happens to my VPS.

    Also you may want to paste the contents on your GRUB2 file here for better troubleshooting: /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

    Hi @Calin !

    PLS give any possible information about the VPS. Host OS, version, etc. Why do you use legacy grub instead of grub2? Do not confuse, if grub2 installed, you still use grub-install and others, grub prefix does not change to grub2.

  • try to boot to Rescue Mode, mount the disk and get the data out then rebuild the VPS

    The expected issue is that after you update your plugins, the kernel is updated also. Therefore, you need to boot from the previous kernel version. You can check this discussion for more details as it covers issues you encountered with:

    With Grub 1 you can edit the config during boot by pressing `e'. Either you need to direct Grub to the correct root device, or your initramfs needs the block device drivers. For fucks sake, personally I compile such drivers into the kernel.
