View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to fix broken Ubuntu after upgrade to Trusty

Hi, I upgraded to Ubuntu Trusty about 1 month ago, and the first time I rebooted, grub could not find a bootable Linux.

I have had this before during upgrades, and usually the common fix of boot-repair-disc restored grub to its usable state.
However, the boot-repair-disc that I used (based on Raring) has now removed all Linux boot options!

So from Windows 7, I burnt the latest boot-repair-disc and tried to get linux booting again with that.

I have now downloaded & burnt it twice, and it boots off the CD.

But when I select an option (either 64bit or 64bit failsafe) the startup process stops and the computer does nothing. Every minute or so the DVD player makes a faint sound, but nothing like the very high activity it shows in the Raring version.

Could it be that the current boot-repair-disc ISO is broken?

Is there an alternative that fits on a CD?
