I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on one of my hard drives: /dev/sdc I created a swap area partition (2 gigs) and two 250 gig partitions for root and /home respectively. Installation went flawlessly but after trying to reboot and boot into Win7 I noticed that Ubuntu would not fully restart. It closes the system and turns off feed to the monitors but the computer stays on and doesn't reset.

If you use sudo reboot from terminal, will it restart correctly? – DaboRoss Jun 16 '13 at 1:52
Attempting now. Thanks for the fast response. Will report back. – user167571 Jun 16 '13 at 1:56
Yes.. It restarted with no issues. Is there anything I can do to fix the UI reboot or will I need to use the terminal to restart indefinitely? – user167571 Jun 16 '13 at 2:01
