Ubuntu 12.04 has worked fine for a long time. After an update I turned the computer off, and when I turned it on the next day I got this screen:

GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3.9
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-40-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-40-generic (recovery mode)
Previous Linux version
Memory test (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)

Press enter to boot selected OS

I don't see 12.04, my operating system, so I don't know what to select.


Just from that description, I don't see any indication that there's something wrong with your boot configuration. Therefore, you shouldn't have to do what @Suhaib suggests.

The "regular" Ubuntu selection is "Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-40-generic". This is probably what you want.

  • ya, I thought it is 12.10 xD – Suhaib Apr 23 '13 at 1:17
