CRC error is a checksum error, which indicates something serious has 
gone wrong. You likely have hard drive corruption from force-restarting 
your Ubuntu partition one to many times.

Can you boot into the recovery partition (through grub) and run fsck? If 
not you will need to run fsck from a livecd which will run a filesystem 
check and try to resolve the errors.

Worst Case scenario is that you need to reinstall (preferably with 9.04, 
not an upgrade from 8.10), and restore all your data.

Thanks Nick
