I run a dual boot w/ Windows 7. Recently, I installed Windows 7 Service Pack 1 which, surprise surprise, screwed up Grub and left Windows the default OS w/ no option to boot into Ubuntu. This is usually a pretty easy fix (boot-repair), but the problem is I can't get a LiveCD that boots.
When I boot from a LiveCD usb, the screen flicks to TTY1, then to a black screen. The screen stays black unless I press
ctrl + alt + F1 to get back to TTY1, where I'm then asked for a username and password. I've tried
ubuntu with a blank password and this does not work.
I'm using this image. I've tried with a fresh USB multiple times. Anyone have any ideas?
