    Ubuntu does not boot after power outage

    I have Ubuntu installed on a macbook pro 13". I boot via an efi boot selector followed by the standard grub bootloader.

    After my computer lost power (while running Ubuntu), my computer will no longer boot into Ubuntu: after selecting Ubuntu in the Grub menu, it just loads a blank screen that says the battery state is okay and then does nothing else.

    Any ideas as to what could cause Ubuntu not to boot after a power failure?

    Corrupted files that ubuntu needs to boot. Did you try booting the recovery option in grub? Else try booting from a liveCD.

    Possibly you can get things running after doing a fsck on the ubuntu partition. See man fsck for more info.
