11.04 natty narwhale (2.6.38-10) stop boot.

After work with: gparted, palimpsest, mountmanager. sda:

sda1 ntfs flag: boot  Windows 7  mbr
sda2 ntfs
sda3 extended flag: lba (?)
sda5 ntfs
sda6 ext4  Ubuntu 11.04
sda4 ext4

stops after:

uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.0: Unlink after no-IRQ? Controller is probably using the wrong IRQ

another time (after edit in Grub 1.98 with "c" or "e"):

Begin: Running /scripts/local-bottom ... done.
done.
Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ... done.

or

usbhid: USB HID core driver
init: plymouth main process (256) terminated with status 1
init: plymouth-splash main process (885) terminated with status 2

or

ata7: SATA link down (SStatus 0 Scontrol 300)

How can I boot it? Thank You.

Can you boot to windows? If yes Then unplug any Usb devices and try to boot. If no look for a bios update and Then unplug any Usb devices. Sometimes a device can flake out the motherboard and cuase the system not to boot properly. –  freebird Jul 4 '11 at 6:32

I set up fresh ubuntu 11.04 natty narwhale on sdb1, but grub 1.99 still doesn't boot - I have to do it in command line. I repaired this by installing boot-repair: (instructions in Polish):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install boot-repair
