I have an Asus p5kc and no matter what I do Grub 2 won't do anything except sit at a black screen with the word GRUB. ESC doesn't work as it is hung for some reason.

This has forced me to go back to 9.04 with the old Grub.

If anyone has a work around I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Chris

This link to the GRUB 2 Ubuntu community documentation has a section on attempting to boot to your system when experiencing difficulties. There are ways to 1) edit the displayed menu, 2) boot from the "grub" prompt and 3) boot from the "grub-rescue" prompt.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Command%20Line%20&%20Rescue%20Mode

If you can get into the system you can then make the necessary changes. Just remember what you had to do to boot, let us know, and we can help you make the adjustments to your Grub 2 files.

That info is worthless as I can't even get into a menu.
