Recently, I installed Ubuntu 10 Netbook edition (on my netbook, yes, obvious). My battery died literally, while I was using Ubuntu.
Now, when I restart the computer, it seems that GRUB has duplicated all of the entries in the MBR that pertain to the partition that houses my Ubuntu install. For example:
Ubuntu ... Ubuntu ... (Recovery Mode) Ubuntu ... Ubuntu ... (Recovery Mode) Memtest ... Memtest ... Windows (Vista loader) Windows (Windows 7 starter loader)
When I try to access either of the two Ubuntu instances in the boot loader it presents me with an error akin to this:
...numbers... Kernel panic ... VFS unable to mount...
What I would like to do is:
Wipe out grub, and Ubuntu, and then reinstall Ubuntu (I really only use it for emacs and ess for R so there's nothing in the home directory that I need to backup)
How would I go about "resetting" my system? Or fixing the issue that I have.
Thanks in advance!
