    Bootup problem

    I accedentally switched off my Ubuntu netbook while it was loading something, and when I powered it back on it did this. I think the kernel got corrupted, and I'm posting this from an Ubuntu 11.10 Live USB (the netbook was running Ubuntu 12.04). Any help would be great!

    From the live usb, try running e2fsck on your partition that had the root file system:

    sudo e2fsck /dev/sda1

    replacing /dev/sda1 with whatever the partition is in your case...

    Eesh... A kernel panic...!
    Yes - run a fsck on your filesystem. That may shed some light.

    I know, kernel panics suck. But I've gotten a ton on the Mac. Here's what fsck gave me:

    Code:
    e2fsck 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
    /dev/sda1: clean, 334808/15204352 files, 8800813/60789760 blocks
    I also ran Disk Utility and it came out with nothing. I'm not sure what to do :/

    Chroot into your installation and install another kernel. Can you boot that?
