comment How do I re-run boot loader?
I get the same issue when I use apt-get autoremove, but as the Eliah Kagan says in his answer grub seems to work fine on reboot.

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
in addition to [Fixing GRUB error: “error: unknown filesystem” [duplicate]](askubuntu.com/q/142300/36961) another great link that covers these steps is How to Rescue a Non-booting GRUB 2 on Linux, the grub 2 manual is also very helpful

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
I also had to specify root when loading the kernel as in the grub docs eg grub> linux (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-33-generic root=/dev/sda2

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
Your post was very helpful for manually booting the kernel and initrd, but my system could not find dev, sys or proc, etc/fstab or sbin/init. That led me to another post, which suggested loading the kernel and setting the root as detailed in the manual boot directions in the grub documentation, eg: grub> linux (hd0,X)/boot/vmlinuz-a.b.c-d-generic root=/dev/sdaX, where X is the partition with /boot, a.b.c-d is the kernel version. Then my system booted fine! Thanks!

@AlexanderRechsteiner Thanks for spotting that I had missed the file system seperator / in the host share!

comment How do I mount shared folders in Ubuntu using VMware tools?
Thanks @AlexanderRechsteiner. Your syntax is probably better as it is more general. FYI, backticks around commands expand the command so since vmware-hgfsclient returns the "share name", then `vmware-hgfsclient`, uses the returned "share name" as the argument for vmware-hgfsmounter. if you're getting "share name is invalid" try running vmware-hgfsclient and seeing what "share name" it returns. It may be a list, and that might be the problem.
