View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rescue System that Crashed During 9.04->9.10

October 31st, 2009, 03:12 PM
My desktop overheated due to poor airflow and crashed during the upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. After booting, the system hangs before showing the gnome desktop. I have an old 8.x disc and could burn a new Ubuntu disc. What's the best way to rescue the system and continue the upgrade?
