First of all, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 from WinXP and booted onto it. I didn't find my NTFS (later I discovered that it was mounted to /host) and did 'apt-get install ntfs-3g ntfs-config'. This turned into conflict as NTFS was already mounted and I decided to remove these packages.
Now I can't boot into Ubuntu as 'mount' fails.
What to do?
