    Upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04 results in boot to busybox

    I was running an up-to-date version of Ubuntu lucid 10.04.4 LTS and used update-manager to upgrade to precise 12.04.1 LTS. After the upgrade was completed, a reboot of the system ended midway in a BusyBox prompt. If I type exit at that prompt the boot seems to continue as normal and the system boots to a usable (seemingly normal) desktop session. This behavior repeats on subsequent reboots. Any clue as to what's going on would be appreciated. Since the busybox prompt is not directly preceded by an error message I don't know what's causing it.

    Looking back at the syslog, here is the bit that immediately preceeds the busybox prompt:

    Re: Upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04 results in boot to busybox

    Two points of clarification:
    1. The system in question is only running Ubuntu; it is not dual booting.
    2. I realize no one may have a complete answer, but any clue as to potential reasons why the busybox prompt might be coming up would help me at least start troubleshooting.
