Ubuntu 13 x64
I get to recovery mode via GRUB, which shows:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-53-generic root=UUID=4a08b936-569c-4ba6-9\607-00d05f121917 ro single
however, when I choose to boot into this mode, the system hangs at:
mount.nfs: Connection timed out mountall: mount /usr/local/backups  terminated with status 32
It will continue to repeat this if left alone...
- I was under the impression that single user mode would bypass mount attempts;
- How do you tell the system NOT to attempt to execute the mountall command?
Clearly, I need to solve the nfs problem, but if I can't get the machine to boot I'm at a disadvantage.
This is a virtual machine instance, so running a LiveCD doesn't appear to be an option.
