July 10th, 2013, 08:32 AM
Hello everyone,
everything was working fine until yesterday when my xubuntu 13.04 updated and downloaded a new image 3.8.0-26 and a bunch of other stuff. Today when i star my computer normally it get stuck. I can start it using the repair mode and after a slow start with the console , i say start normally , it send me to console , i type startx and i can start (after cliking an error message saying "gnome session error").
The small problem is i can't access my other disks , fdisk -l detect theml but i can't mount them...
You have some help? :(

each kernel installation needs: 2 headers + 2 images
check that is true about the latest kernel installed

can you boot normally with an older kernel ?

With older kernels(35) i got the same results.
I post you the installation list of the update

Now i think i figured out what is wrong . Ubuntu at boot has big trouble detecting my Hard drives . it says dev/sda timeout something like that. The it dont boot directly to the desktop but i have to start xfce from command line. But it works. But then it doesnt detect my disks. But i can mount thme manually from the command line. What is going on? :(
