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

System:

  • AMD Phenom II quad core

  • 4GB RAM

  • ATI 5750 GPU (I think)

  • 3x3TB HD in Raid 5 config (installed these using Raider)

Initially installed Mythbuntu, Everything worked fine.

Upgraded to standard Ubuntu-desktop, Everything worked fine

Then my wife screwed with some stuff and after that the desktop would boot and then instantly freeze.

However, Myth backend still works great.

I booted from the LiveUSB to make sure GPU wasn't bad, works fine.

Upgraded UI to Ubuntu unity. No change.

Right now, I'm regretting putting the OS and the storage on the same disks. I bought a new HD so I can put the OS on a separate drive. I don't care about the OS so much, but I don't want to lose all my videos. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here is my fdisk -l output:
