    Red face Ubuntu skips BIOS and GRUB on reboot.

    When I chose reboot from the shutdown menu Ubuntu unloads itself and then reloads itself (Bypassing the BIOS, and GRUB) at first I though it was a feture but if I don't manually restart (By pressing Reset or power cycling it) the NVIDIA driver does not work and therefore X wont load normally.

    I'm sure what I post here won't be much help, but I could confirm this, although I haven't had it in a while and I'm not sure what it is caused by either.

    Just throwing out some ideas at what I think might affect it. Maybe it's the nvidia binary driver. If you deactivate it from "System > Administration > Hardware drivers" are you able to restart properly?

    Appreciate what the severe effort of many converging wills has produced.

    Turns out I somehow installed kexec which is designed for speed ing the reboot process but is unfortunately incompatible with the Nvidia binary driver.
