I've accidentally changed the UUID of /home partition. I corrected the UUID by updating /etc/fstab. Now ubuntu in normal boot is stuck at boot logo but I can boot up using upstart. How do I fix this?

  • As evidenced by the fact that you've already lead one answerer on a wild goose chase, "it is not working" is a utterly useless description of what your computer is doing. Describe what your computer is doing, precisely and in detail by editing your question, and answerers will have a sporting chance of helping you. – JdeBP Dec 6 '15 at 11:31

    It is stuck at boot logo! Chill man!! – Bhargav Joshi Dec 6 '15 at 17:21

The root file system UUID would also have been written into the GRUB configuration file, /boot/grub/grub.conf, and that should be corrected as well.

  • Thank you for your help but this file has UUID of my root directory. But I've mounted /home in different partition. So no need to correct root file system UUID. Can you suggest me any other solution? – Bhargav Joshi Dec 6 '15 at 7:33
  • Yes, right. Sorry. Maybe it helps to re-run grub-install and update-grub? – Ralph Rönnquist Dec 6 '15 at 7:57
  • it worked! I reinstalled grub and it booted perfectly fine! – Bhargav Joshi Dec 6 '15 at 17:18
