#1198: App Cafe update killed boot environment in grub with improper setting

     Type:  Package Issue - Production  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major                       |  Milestone:
Component:  PBI Updater                 |    Version:  10.0.1
 Keywords:                              |
----------------------------------------+--------------------
 I just updated everything on my PC, 10.0.2, and rebooted, and ran app
 cafe, as per instructions:
 "After updating and rebooting, please run the AppCafe once to begin the
 conversion process from the old style PBIs to 10.0.2 packages."

 When I opened AppCafe, and started the update, it created a new boot
 environment, which appears to be the problem.

 Everything went great, until I tried rebooting. When the App Cafe update
 completed, it showed a button to reboot. When I pressed the button, it
 started rebooting, it shut down, the bios posted, and it went to grub, and
 I got the following message:

 "error: symbol `Grub term_highlight_color' not found.
 Entering rescue mode..."

 And no command that I can think of will do anything in rescue mode. I
 tried all the commands I could think of from grub
 I can't get help, I can't load the kernel, so it gives the message "error:
 you must load the kernel first." But, I can't get it to load the kernel,
 because anything other than "boot", gets the message: "Unkown command" :^(
