I got a serious problem here:

I recently upgraded to the Latest Version of Ubuntu. Now, I boot to my Ubuntu Partition, and I get a Low-Graphics error!

I boot to a Recovery-Mode to see what the Problem is. Then, I try to Fix any Damaged Packages, to run fsck but nothing solved the Problem.

Then, from the Recovery Menu, I open a Root Shell. I try to create a File and I understand that the Filesystem is Read-Only. Then, I run:

mount -o remount,rw /

and it Worked for that Terminal Session!

When I go back to recovery, I select to resume Boot Normally but I get the Same Error! a I also tried to Boot to my Root Shell again, remount as Read-Write and Start Gnome from there. It Worked! (But the user is ROOT, and is quite Dangerous!)

However, I can't do all this proccess at every boot!

Any Solution?

(Note that when I try to create a new File in my Ubuntu Partition from another OS, I don't get any Errors!)

check your S.M.A.R.T. looks like your HDD is failing

  • OK! I will try it...

Try this: instead of using the Root shell to mount the filesystem in read-write mode, choose "Resume Normal Boot." This will mount your filesystem in read-write mode (it even warns you that it's about to do that,) and then it will boot normally.

  • I tried to do so. Still the same error Appears! I can't Understand... I also tried to create a startup script to remount the HDD to Read-Write, but it didn't work...
