highlight quiet, use 'delete' ('d'?)
do *not* escape
just press 'ctl' + 'x' keys (together) to boot

Looking at your earlier error message, suggest you add 'nomodeset' (no 
apostrophes) too to that line

looks very bad. At grub prompt, type ls, then ls (hd0,0)
please check uuid if altered. Looks like the partition is /dev/sda1

Since you're still on grub-legacy, best you try rebooting (if uuid or 
more likely the mapping is wrong, grub-legacy not good in this) by
manually typing at grub prompt the following instead...

root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinux-2.6.32-32-generic root=/dev/sda1 nomodeset
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-32-generic

note:quiet is at same line as kernel, not at bottom
