    Followed by:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2860sta
    Then you need to blacklist the wrong driver:
    Code:
    echo blacklist rt2800pci | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Once you have rebooted (you will need to do a hard power off for the last time!) you will find you can reboot properly. Thanks to Linuxexperte for this fix.

    Hope this helps.
    This was helpful in that blacklisting the rt2800pci prevented my shutdown and reboot hangs. However I don't appear to have any other driver for the rt3090, and so have no wireless.

    Having no wireless is currently not a problem since I'm currently hooked up by wire. If I wanted to move my machine it could become a problem.

    Being able to reboot cleanly is far more important.

    Thanks, Jim

    Hi,
    I also have the same problem. It NOT get solved by the wireless module, modprobe solution.

    Before I do the modprobe solution, I got the messages ,
    stoping mount file system on boot
    acpid:exiting
    checking for running unattended upgrades

    after I made the modprobe change, I got

    could not write bytes:Broken pipe
    could not write bytes:Broken pipe
    could not write bytes:Broken pipe
    could not write bytes:Broken pipe
    checking for running unattended upgrades


    I am running, 3.2.0-26-generic-pae
    Due to the force shutdown I am doing, I already lost my custom changes in the grub menu [ def time out, background etc ] ...

    Looking for a solution ...
    Thanks,
