I did a fresh install of 16.04 this morning and after installation finished I am asked to reboot the system. When I do that I get a command list or what ever and the last log says

No Caching mode page present
Assuming drive cache: write through

and it just hangs there forever. I reluctantly did a hard restart and I'm put into the grub recovery menu where grub doesn't recognize any file systems or partitions. Are there any solutions to this?

Normally, you can check the boot log (sudo journalctl -xb) to see boot errors that were not shown on screen. If grub cannot detect any partitions, your boot entries may be messed up though.
