I have newly installed ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS on a Macbook Pro '13, everything works fine but after I shared a folder and installed samba and some other features which the system prompt me to install when I share the folder, I can't boot the system anymore. It hangs on here:

I can get network working in recovery mode and I removed samba in recovery mode but it doesn't help.

What can I do now? I really don't what to reinstall ubuntu.

Can you edit the grub line and remove the quiet? I'm pretty sure samba won't block the boot sequence. –  Braiam Oct 8 '13 at 15:09
    
I solved this by remove and re-install gdm in recovery mode. First time I used root to install gdm, but still can't boot, then I switched to my own user and install gdm with sudo in recovery mode, after reboot everything goes fine! –  Phoenix Oct 14 '13 at 8:58
