    Upgrading Ubuntu 13.10 to 14.04 failed, stuck at GRUB prompt

    During the dist-upgrade of my Ubuntu 13.10 server, it got stuck during some part of GRUB.
    The bug resulted in: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...2/+bug/1311543

    After retrying it failed again and I decided to reboot to see if it would fix my system.
    Sadly though, I'm stuck at the GRUB rescue prompt and I have no clue what to do there.

    After a bit of research I gave the boot-repair disc a try but it seems to fail running the specified commands.
    An error in grub-pc.

    My boot info script:
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/7358757/

    I run the Ubuntu server in a Xenserver 6.2 VM.

    As a GRUB n00b I'm kinda clueless where to start.
    Can anyone help me trying to tackle this problem?

    @ott-fogliata
    I doubt that your problem is exactly like the OP. He had an install inside a virtual system with LVM. If Boot-Repair cannot correctly mount that and reinstall grub I do not know what to do for him.
    But you issue should be a lot different. Start a new thread and post a link to BootInfo report from Boot-Repair.

    Hi Oldfred, Excuse me, I think I have the same problem 'cause it all happened during dist-upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 LTS in a virtualized ubuntu server (Xen Server 6.2)

    Ok, but I am moving thread to visualization sub-forum where those who know more may see it.
