    how to re-install after deleting an image

    I was using Synaptic to cleanup and free some space and now it takes me to a black screen. Done this several times before and never had a problem. I always leave the 3 highest numbered images showing as installed.
    This time it seems the active image was not the highest number. So there are higher images, but somehow grub is not offering them and it tries to load an image that was deleted.

    any ideas how to fix??

    Use the grub menu to choose a different kernel.

    I did everything and said that repair is done. when I reboot it arrives at the same black screen and does not start the gui. the linux shell is there. is there a way to start the gui manually from there?

    it may not be a boot issue. I ran several recovery modes aand all take me to the same spot:

    i/o error, dev sda sector xxxxx
    ------
    /dev/sda5 unexpected inconsistency; run fsck manually
    failure file system check of the root filesystem failed

    so what do I do with fsck??

    Fixed.

    I googled and found this
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/6971...-fsck-manually

    just ran fsck /dev/sda5 and VOILA it works.
