I tried adding noverify by pressing 'e' and editing the line from grub.
I then pressed 'b' to boot from there but there was no difference. You

but it hadn't any problems when the machine was running Debian.

I went back into the partitioner and set both disks' bootable status to
on but I'm still getting the same results.
Thanks to you both for your suggestion and sorry I haven't replied
