Peter, if you still have problems, at grub menu, press 'e' at the first
entry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic' and use arrow to go to line
below and change
root=UUID=908ae871-7f17-4ec6-bb87-bd835260e227 ro quiet splash
root=UUID=908ae871-7f17-4ec6-bb87-bd835260e227 ro nomodest
then, press 'alt' and 'x'
Let us know how this goes.
Regards, good luck - Goh Lip
