I didn't realise that you could get to the boot options from the Live CD.
That was part of my rationale for suggesting the alternative CD, because I
thought I had read somewhere (maybe for an older version of Ubuntu) that if
one wanted to change the boot options, one had to use the alternative CD.
Or maybe I'm just hallucinating.

Anyway, given that you can do this, I agree (loudly) that this is the thing
to try.
