View Full Version : Kernel Panic on first boot?

January 9th, 2014, 02:24 AM
Just upgraded my computer from 32-bit Ubuntu 13.10 (it's been upgraded a few times) to 64-bit. Boot disk worked great. Installation went pretty smoothly, other than a brief warning right at the end that a few pieces of software didn't work, so they were removed and can be reinstalled later - sounds ok.
Reboot, makes it past grub. Starting to boot the OS, and then the Kernel Panics (whatever that means).
Try reinstalling, same thing. Try re-downloading and re-burning the ISO. Same thing.
Now I have this:
And that's it. Doesn't do anything beyond that. Keyboard seems to not function. All I know how to do is hard-shutdown and boot it up again.

Please help. I'm understandably pretty helpless without my computer :-(

Nevermind guys. I did a full reinstall and now it boots fine.
