Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've been having trouble getting 13.04 booted recently.

First I had trouble getting grub working but I resolved that issue. I finally got it booted and installed the ATI drivers.

Now it goes to a purple screen after selecting Ubuntu and won't do anything. I looked that up and was told to try nomodeset which also failed.

Then I was told to try recovery mode but whenever I select that it boots to recovery menu and immediately freezes.
