    [xubuntu] Re: Black Bars Around Edge of Monitor

    OK after a couple days, it looks like the fix is stable :D. Despite the fact that hard rebooting in general is a bad idea-let alone during reboot-it seems to have done the trick.

    [ubuntu] Re: Computer boots and displays initramfs

    Sounds like something broke at or below the kernel level if you're in busybox. Can you drop into a root shell using the "(recovery)" grub entry?
