I think I have problem with shutdown command. Using Ubuntu 11.10.

The shutdown command works and computer shuts down, but when I boot I get the following warning:
* * * * * Warning: System BOOT Fail * * * * *
Your system last boot fail or POST interrupted.
Please enter setup to load default and reboot again.

This warning appears only when I shutdown computer. If I reboot, there is no warning. I don't know what to do and it's really annoying pressing F1 so that computer boot will continue.

This problem first appeared on Ubuntu 11.04 or possibly even further back.

I should mention, that I have dual boot system, and the other operating systems is Win7 and it doesn't trigger this warning. I reseted BIOS and problem is still there.

Your help will be warmly received.

Thanks Domen
