comment Boot failure - nothing works
Or not. It worked for 1 day. Now, I can not boot any more. Instead, I get the "unknown filesystem. Grub rescue" message. To make it worse, live session does not work, neither from CD, nor from USB. I have no idea what to do. Do you?

For this occasion, I chose to backup my files, wipe the entire ubuntu install with gparted (leaving the space unallocated) and reinstalling from live USB. Probably not the most elegant solution, but the cleanest and, for me, the simplest, as I am not great with code and such. I just hope it won't happen again. HH

Hey, thanks. I have never done anything of that sort before - it's a bit of a scary notion, but it all fails, I will certainly try. Is chip creep likely to happen on a device that is barely a few months old? Also, I can see all my hard drive partitions and such from a live session, does that make a difference?
