    This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.

    Did you install it like that ?

    How did you partition the drive?

    In linux, your folders and files are stored in /home/your-username. Here you can make any directories you wish (documents, pictures, blablabla). As a normal user, this is the only folder you can write to.
