Had a remote system 12.04 server go down after a power issue, Attempted using boot-rescue and followed the recomendations, they seemed to make sense.

Upon reboot the grub rescue prompt appears after error : invalid arch independent ELF magic

I'm asking this before I make matters worse as the system is not at my finger tips.

Here's the Bootinfo log from boot-rescue


Any suggestions would be welcome and appreciated.

Regards, Mal
