View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu wont boot after update 11.10

December 12th, 2011, 11:13 PM
i hae been running 11.10 fine for a while now, but when i updated the packages and restarted it keeps taking me to some sort of prelog screen where it ways cheking battery life or something like that. i have tried everything. i have tried running the live cd via the bootloader, i have tried wiping the entire os off my harddrive. i have had some success by getting to the grub interface and using previous versions of ubuntu to boot the computer, but i havent been able to do that in the last couple of hours, and whenever i would shut down, it would start the same problem again. Now i cant access anything, when i hold shift or f12 during start up it does nothing. sometimes i also get a brief purple screen before the prelog thing comes up
