    Pressing the Shift key during reboot does not put me in Recovery Mode. I tried several times, thinking I missed the crucial moment, but to no avail. Is there another way?

    Followed your reference in thread 11. Using the Shift key during reboot does not put me in recovery mode. Tried timing my press several times, but never interrupted the boot. Is there another way to get into recovery?

    Some systems are not very cooperative when you want the grub menu. Around the time the bios screen disappears, try holding or repeatedly hitting the shift key. Usually it doesn't matter which shift key, but sometimes it does. When you get to the grub menu, select recovery mode.

    If it doesn't work, try a live disk. When you have booted from a live disk you can mount the root partition of your installed system and fix it.
