I've upgrade my Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 using the update manager. After the install finished (it took several hours) the system froze so i had to turn off the notebook with the power button (I've wait a long time before do it). After reboot and selecting Ubuntu (I have Ubuntu installed alongside Windows 7) it displays this message:
No init found. Try passing init=bootarg
I started Ubuntu from a live USB and try to pass the fsck command but the whole Ubuntu partition just isn't there. With
fdisk -l it only displays 3 partitions:
/dev/sda1--->System_DRV 1.17 Gb /dev/sda2--->The Windows 7 partition 454 Gb /dev/sda3--->the Lenovo Recovery partition 9.77 Gb
The disk have 500 Gb so there's some space missing. I'm no expert in Ubuntu so I don't have many ideas on solving this problem.
When the computer starts it shows the 2 OS for selecting and if I try to fresh install Ubuntu it says that I have various OS installed and give me 2 options: Format all the disk and install only Ubuntu or manually manage my partitions (it also shows only those 3) but none of my files are there for access, I just can't manage to find that part or mount it.
I don't care to recover the files, I've made a backup of them before the upgrade, but I need Ubuntu installed, and also that space that it is occupying.
