Welcome back Craig!
Welcome back Craig!
A BIG Welcome back from me too
Thanks Hazzabin...didn't think i would be back but i figured i might as well ride this one through...i must say, it's running really well at this point
I could start a new thread on this, but the only strange problem i am having (which i didn't have with my previous install of 14.04 development) is when initially booting up, i get the GNU GRUB screen coming up for about 5 seconds before it automatically boots to the sign in screen...you know, the screen you'd normally get if you were dual booting (to make your selection) but i'm not dual booting...that's the screen you'd also bring up manually if you wanted to change the kernel you are booting off from...
It's not a biggie, but just seems a bit weird that it is coming up first (since 14.04 is all i am running)....if anyone knows what could be causing that and a possible solution, please let me know...

Did you remove the remains of any old kernels? The reason I ask is because that could be why you are seeing the grub screen. Take a look with Synaptic and see what is installed as far as kernel packages.
I'll check that, Don...usually the upgrade does that automatically (in fact during the install, i noticed it was removing kernels from 13.10)...by the way, in case you or others here are not sure what i am talking about it when i say GNU GRUB screen, what i am seeing is what you see on this link (except mine has a purple background instead of black) but the text is the same...
I just saw Zika's post: i will check that also and report back later...

That is what I thought you were talking about. The upgrade still leaves some remains of old kernels, I think to keep the system usable while the upgrade is taking place. I would check out what is installed using Synaptic and go from there. My guess is that grub thinks you have multiple kernels you could use. I mark old kernels and obsolete packages for complete removal, that way there is no chance of residual config files causing problems.
Take a look in Synaptic and let me know if you need any help.
@Don: looking at Synaptic, it shows: 220.127.116.11.3 installed 3.13.0-5.20 installed and 18.104.22.168.3 on the list but not installed....
@Zika: i ran that command in the terminal and this screenshot will show what it says...Screenshot from 2014-01-25 12:42:37.png
Just remove the old kernels and things should be the way you want them.
See step six and do a dry run first.
