I was running Ubuntu 10.11 , with several virtual machines on it (Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu 11.04 etc) and decided to update the Ubuntu 11.04 virtual machine to 11.10.
However, it decided (there was no option anywhere) to update the MAIN machine, not the virtual machine and consequently, the computer won't boot up!
I have got it going using a flash drive and I can see all my files - but I can't get at them to copy, because it says I do not have the necessary permissions.
Similarly, I can see the virtual machine folders, but I can't access them.
Anyone any bright ideas? Thanks Chris
