Dear list,

I upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop to the latest LTS release. The upgrade
process went smoothly, failed to restart.
I run Ubuntu as a virtual machine using virtualbox on a Windows XP
host. After restarting, all I see is a black screen with a
non-responsive white cursor on the top left hand corner of the screen.

I did not backup anything before the upgrade -now I wonder I lost
everything on my virtual disk!.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,
