View Full Version : [ubuntu] 16.04 does not boot in normal and recovery kernel . Only boots in startup option

I have just upgraded my netbook Dell Inspiron mini 1012 to Ubuntu 16.04 and I cannot boot normally. The only possibility to boot is in advanced options: kernel (upstart). In the other options the boot freezes and I have to shut down the power to boot with the startup advanced option.

What did you upgrade from when you moved to 16.04?

From what I can see about the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 I suspect that it does not have sufficient resources or specification to run Ubuntu very well so I suggest you try something a lot lighter such as Lubuntu or Xubuntu and you may find it is OK.

Have you tried boot-repair?

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
