comment Boot hangs when DVD reader is closed — mount issue? [15.04]
@Mikk If that is the case it is likely a broken driver package that is not running the initramfs when its updated. You should post a question with your apt-get update output log to see if the broken package can be identified

comment Able to boot via 'Previous Linux Versions' but what now?
The difference between those versions is very minor (same kernel version, the -37 and -39 are ubuntu releases, not any upstream kernel difference. You can try to reinstall by booting into the -37 kernel and running apt-get clean --purge linux-image-3.13.0-39-generic to remove and then reinstall.

If you put a DVD in does it mount/read

Have you tried to see if it boots eventually (It could stall and hang for 60-120 seconds and then keep booting)

Ok, I would try to see if sudo update-initramfs -u fixes anything. I would also clean the system of old kernels and drivers, update the kernel, and reinistall CUDA drivers. To me it sounds like a kernel configuration issue (expecting to mount a drive but failing and panicing)

When you boot successfully and close the drive, does the system attempt to mount something? Does it give any errors? Was the CUDA driver off a PPA or official repository?
