I have just installed Mint on an Asus VivoMini UN45. The install seemed to work OK, but when I start up the computer it stops at the grub> prompt. I then have to type EXIT in order for it load Linux.

What instructions should I enter at the grub> prompt in order to make it load straight into Linux?

the odd thing (at least to me) is i always assumed that if you get a grub prompt, it means your system can not find the necessary or does not know where the elements such as the partition where root install is , initrd and vmlinuz . So i'm surprised after just typing exit, it boots ?
