HI and it sounds like you are booting into recovery mode. Are you booting to the first choice at the grub and are you dual booting with windows? Did you modify the grub menu list?

You are booting into recovery mode. The recovery mode will give you that menu during the boot.

Have you perhaps configured the default boot option for Grub? In that case you should remember that the numbering starts from 0, so if you have set it to 1 now that will boot the _second_ option, the recovery mode.
