View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade 8.10 > 9.04 froze; Now fails to boot

I just went to upgrade from 8.10 and during the upgrade the process froze and I went to reboot. Now I get the new log in screen, but after entering name and password I see a blank orange screen. My cursor is visible and moves, but I have nothing else.

How can I get an OS back? I'd like to get back to 8.10, but at this point either would be a big improvement.

Don't know for sure, but you could try re-installing the ubuntu-desktop from the rescue-mode command-line with
apt-get install ubuntu-desktop(though there might be other fixes as well).
