    Darkishjace;

    update-initramfs should only take a matter of seconds.

    Matt, what about trying to update initramfs with
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    see what errors we get.(??)

    Not exactly a master, just a regular user but thanks for the compliment.

    It should take a minute or two to run.

    Let's see what happens when we create it manually.

    From the terminal

    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -v -c -k 3.5.0-26-generic
    Post any output back here. Does it hang still ?

    Kind regards

    Press ctrl + c in the terminal where it's running.

    The command to manually create the initramfs will give us alot more information about what it's done/ doing and where it's hanging as it's using the -v switch (at least this is the hope).

    Pressing ctrl and c at the same time did not kill it ?

    Alright. Please run this command again from another terminal and post back the results.

    Code:
    ps aux | egrep "dpkg|apt|cent|manager|update"
    Post the results back here.

    We're not making to much progress at the moment but hopefully that will change.

    @bashng-om. Good idea about manually generating initramfs.
