    Ubuntu 12.04 crash

    Hi I have a dual boot with win7 and ubuntu 12.04. Last night some UPS failure caused the system to crash without going through the entire shutdown process.When I rebooted Ubuntu it shows a dark screen with message like:-
    dev/sda3 failed to unmount cleanly...
    .....
    ..
    sulogin:cannot open password database

    and restarts all over...

    I read :- this link but dont understand how do I mount /etc from the live cd.
