It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Can you use an SD card for swap in Ubuntu 12.04?
Thanks. I guess I'll have to find another use for it. I thought about media but my music and ebook collections are too large to fit and I wouldn't want to split them up. On the flip side, my photo and video collections are practically non-existent and it wouldn't help much. C'est la vie.

comment How do I remove lubuntu-desktop?
I followed the instructions on the linked page for 12.04 and it worked but it removed a couple things that I would have preferred to have kept. PHP5 and Chrome are what I've noticed so far. Nothing that can't be reinstalled, just a tiny bit more of a hassle than I initially realized.

Yup. It's the exact same situation you described.

I am having the same problem on my Toshiba NB505. I also have 12.04 and everything is up to date.

comment Cannot Choose Operating System After Reinstall
It's not necessarily F2. It's escape on one of my computers and F12 on another. It just depends on what the manufacturer has chosen. You could Google to find out what it is for your particular computer or (probably easier) just watch the screen when it reboots.
