    Are you sure the fsck problem is related to your upgrade problem? Have you booted from a Live CD and run fsck on the partition you are having the problem with?

    I'm not sure if it's related but before i make the update everything (if we forget all the habituals problems) were working well and now nothing.
    I booted from an USB drive and i don't find how to lunch fsck from the USb drive.

    Open a terminal, and type:

    Code:
    sudo fsck -y /dev/sda1
    OF course substitute the partition in the command above, for the one you're having a problem with.

    For more command options, see:

    Code:
    man fsck

    HAve you tried using nomodeset to get to a desktop, at the grub menu press e, and add nomodeset to the end of the kernel line. If that doesn't work. try removing quiet and splash from the kernel line.

    It must have an other solution to remake the starting part.
    Maybe with the help of an USBlive.
    Reinstall the grub or lightdm or something else.


    How can i know if it's in read/write or only read ?
    In development release, expect to install often and have backup partitions. Updates do crap out. We learn a lot of linux dealing with the wreckage. A few of the bugs I enter into Launchpad get fixed, some go away with updates, some are ignored and I have to do workarounds. Beta 2 is worse on wireless WPA and TV monitor support. Despite bugs entered, I think Ubuntu is far more interested in dumping in fancy features I don't use. I run Beta2 looking for bugs then boot 12.04 2D to get some work done faster.
