I have had Ubuntu for awhile now and haven't had any real issues until recently. About 1-2 months ago I started having booting issues. On bootup, I receive a Debian screen asking for what version I want to start or do I want to start in recovery mode. This is weird because I don't have a dual/multi OS setup on my laptop.
Sometimes I only have to hit enter once and then I receive the Ubuntu login screen, but most of the time, it goes into this infinite loop where that Debian screen keeps appearing and no matter what option I chose (other than recovery mode), it stays in the loop. If I chose recovery mode, it gets stuck and I am force to do a hard reboot.
Some information about my laptop
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit
- Dell Latitude E640
- i5 processor
- 8GB ram
- 120Gb SSD
