    Fatal Upgrade. Load procedure stops no login screen

    Hi
    Something went wrong during my attempt to upgrade.
    Now the boot procedure freezes after showing this last line:
    setting Advanced Power Management level to 0xfe (254) (OK)

    I've tried the recovery menu and the previous installation entry's in Grub all with the same result.

    Here's in short what I did:
    I started to Upgrade on-line from 8.10 to 9.04 using Update Manager.
    Before Update Manager finished downloading all packages I cancelled.
    Later I downloaded the I386 ISO and upgraded from the CD-drive.

    Any suggestion on how I can log in is appreciated.

    Exclamation Re: Fatal Upgrade. Load procedure stops no login screen

    I have some similar problems on a hp 2730p (tablet-pc).

    I updated to 9.04 this morning, since this i got some awful graphics (lines and stripes) on my screen after finishing progressbar-screen.

    Hope anyone can help!

    Seems the problem have changed, so now the loading screen starts up all right but after a minute or so the screen meses up turn weird violet and then burns over in white.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    If I try to start up in Recovery mode I see something like this:

    Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
    -Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
    - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
    - Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
    - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls/dev)
    ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/bc3230d8-98-4d72-bc59-c43c14212b14 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

    BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2ubuntu7) Built-in shell(ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

    (initramfs)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Does this makes sense to any of you?

    Same thing here. Hideous lines and boxes immediately after install.

    Startup screen works well, then everything goes to hell.

    I have two video cards, and there is a distinct pattern of hideous lines and boxes for either one.

    I have the same problem even though i only have one video card. I have been very thankful for the community on this site when it comes to helping me with problems, but ive been trying to figure out this issue for 3 days now and there has been absolutely no help. The worst part is that no one ( at least in the post that i have) has even come up and said this is the issue and we are waiting on solution or something like that.

    I must underline here that I am very thankful for this website and it has been of great help every time I needed it in the past.

    I'm up and running again

    I downloaded and burned the Alternate I386 CD

    In Grub I selected the previouis recovery entry, when the load proces stucked I did this:

    Code:
    ctrl + alt + f1 (to start the terminal)
    Login with user and password

    I Inserted the Alternate CD

    At first I tried this code without succes:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade --fix-missing
    And another resultless attemt too:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install update-manager
    sudo update-manager -d
    But this third hit did it for mee:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    I found the code here: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Jaunty
