    Exclamation alloc magic broken

    alloc magic is broken at 0x7ff79760
    i just moved, and we've had a small power failure, now when booting it reboots several times before giving the above error... help?

    its ubuntu 10.04

    and the error comes up before i can get to the boot selection menu, and thus, the cd will not boot... :S

    Do you mean the boot selection menu of the BIOS, since it seems you attempt to boot from a CD? If that is true, it would point to a problem with the BIOS rather than Ubuntu.
