My host operating system is Windows 7. I have installed vmware over it. And was running ubuntu 10.04LTS using vmware.
But today out of curiosity, i downloaded new kernel 3.10.1 compiled it and installed it using commands: make menuconfig, make -j32,make modules_install, make install
Here after installation i couldn't find initrd image in /boot location, so i copied a initrd image from another system over which i earlier installed 3.10.1 kernel.
And then i modified my grub.cfg, so that it could have a entry for new kernel.
But after restart, i am only seeing a blank screen over vmware and nothing else.
Could somebody point out what should i do now to recover my system. Is my ubuntu OS is 10.04 and i have installed 3.10.1 is the issue or initrd copied from another machine has resulted in this problem
