Heads up: Dell Vostro 200 tower

I have a current problem and from an internet search it very much looks like this:

I have a thread, to date still unanswered, which describes my user level problem which is a show stopper. I am glad I have not yet done a re install in desperation, it probably would not have fixed it! -

version upgrade 7.10 to 8.04 trouble, grub choices

From the subject lines there is no suggestion of association however
I am using Vostro(s) and it looks like the same problem, a race at loading.

I have done another update on the stricken machine today, but still can only use an old kernel (6 updates ago) or the problem arises.

Soon maybe tomorrow, I will try to follow the fix and investigate further.

I have now tried this fix and it works, and I can therefore now use the later kernels.
