[Bug 32123] Re: initramfs not generated correctly on dist-upgrade

I'm a new user, who partitioned [160GB] and installed 8.04 AMD dual boot
[w/XP] on Dell/Vostro machine (much fun).

Now, Ubuntu won't reboot and NONE of the Live CDs will either. GRUB is
working fine (wherever that resides) so XP comes up.

Basically, initramfs "hangs", followed by repeated ATA0 ... errors.
Others have many related stories out there. No need to circumvent kernel
as others have done but appreciate any [tips or] new distribution of
8.04 to resolve.

I offer any details, if needed, to help expedite resolution.
