Lua is not part of official grub. You need to add grub-contrib for it to work. If you still have problem even with grub-contrib enabled please let me know

Hi everyone,

I want to use lua to do some logic on grub, which needs to be embedded
in the lua interpreter. I found that grub supports lua as early as 2009,
and only a few months later, the lua was removed. I checked the
Changelog and git log, the reason for removal was not found, I want to
know why the support for lua was removed.

Judging from the current situation, if grub wants to support a scripting
language, lua is undoubtedly the most suitable and completely feasible.
Is it acceptable to support lua in grub now? If possible, I will
consider doing this.

Best regards,
