Minimal BASH like line editing is supported. 

After finishing a fresh install and rebooting I was met with a different looking grub screen not like the typical grub menu.

It says

 Minimal BASH like line editing is supported... 

I have tried chrooting back into my install and reinstalling grub several times.

Here's what I've tried:

$ mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

$ arch-chroot /mnt

$ grub-install /dev/sda

$ grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Re: Minimal BASH like line editing is supported. 

Did you take a look at the actual file that was generated? Which instructions did you follow to set up the installation?

Use the set command at the "grub>" prompt to find out where GRUB is looking for the configuration file.

I will take a stab in the dark and suggest that perhaps you forgot to install a kernel.

I'll take a stab in a reasonably well lit room and suggest that perhaps you followed a tutorial other than the one on our wiki.
