I finally got into my system.
After grub, I get a blinking cursor on a black screen. I need to do a ctrl-alt-del to get to a prompt, then quickly type init 3 to prevent reboot. After this I need to remount the file system as rw and then do a sudo service dbus start, followed by sudo service hal start, sudo service gdm start. This gets me into the gui. This is where I have lots of serious issues reported by apport. Not sure anymore if they are related to this issue or to dbus errors.
I also have a thread going here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1281504 
Thanks for any help.
