    Re: MagicSysRq keys for assistance with Ubuntu troubles

    Hi, my system happened to freeze often and I tried this (usually I do cold reboots) and when system restarted all I saw was operating system not found...I had dual boot then used live CD and boot recovery to fix the issue...

    I am just curious to understand what went wrong when I tried alt+sysreq+r+e+I+s+u+b...is it okay to use on dual boot machines?

    Sony VAIO + Ubuntu 12.04

    If anyone faces a freeze with Ubuntu where you cannot do anything, then this will certainly be helpful if you want to reboot the OS as cleanly as possible without damaging their HDD's or losing their data.

    In case of a freeze where you cannot do anything, simply press Alt+SysRq+R+S+E+I+U+B
    Although, many persons pointed out...
    Is [Alt+SysRq]+REISUB better than [Alt+SysRq]+RSEIUB ?
