    To boot into linux in the first place, push e in the grub menu, delete the save_env recordfail line, and press ctrl+x to boot.

    Next, run these commands:

    cd /boot/grub
    rm grubenv
    grub-editenv grubenv create
    grub-editenv grubenv set default=0
    grub-editenv grubenv list
    default=0

    This should give you a bootable system. Found the solution here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...b2/+bug/439784. Hope this helps someone!
    I linked to this post on the Grub2 Introduction.

    I had this problem a while back and my fix was not anywhere near as elegant as this. Good job and thanks.

    Thanks for posting this. I had to forcefully shutdown the laptop today (power button), and this popped up.

    Could you or someone else explain how this fix works?
