View Full Version : [ubuntu] strange booting issue - need insights

May 14th, 2008, 06:57 PM
If you read my last post here:


you will see what I did before noticing this problem (I realize there may not be a cause-effect relationship here).

Anyways, my LG E200 laptop is partitioned with XP on one side and Gutsy on the other. Now, when I reboot from Gutsy, the computer simply hangs at the first screen (BIOS screen or whatever it's called). I have to power off the computer and turn it on again to get to the grub menu.

When I reboot from XP, there is no such problem. I really don't understand how this could be caused, so if anyone has any suggestions at all I would be most appreciative.

I'm giving this one last shot. Then I suppose it's time for a re-install.
