View Full Version : Failed to start load kernel modules - normal troubleshooting not working

October 13th, 2018, 08:54 PM
Like others, I had a hiccup during the reboot phase of 14.04 to 16.04, and now I'm getting the "Failed to start load kernel modules" error and can't progress any farther. Almost every thread I've seen points back to this post: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2318779&p=13466943#post13466943

I have tried this without success. (I can get to GRUB and enter advanced, and recovery) The most that I've gotten is when I've done those commands (nothing seems to directly happen with any of them) and resume the boot, I instead get "FAILED failed to start nfs mount daemon" instead. Any hope of saving this install, or will I have to rebuild my server?
