Ubuntu: I can't seem to boot Ubuntu properly


I recently installed Ubuntu and once installed, I was greeted by a black screen only (the terminal).

When restarting I selected Ubuntu and it still sent me back to the black screen again.

I used to have windows 8 before I installed Ubnutu so i'm thinking maybe it's win 8 causing it somehow.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?


During your installation process, you must have been asked on which partition you wished to install your bootloader. If you select the wrong partition, GRUB won't know where to look for Ubuntu.

Luckily, there are several tools that allow you to repair that, among which Boot-Repair.

Download the live-CD version of boot repair, and simply execute the recomended repair option. Would it fail, please the info provided on your OP so that we can help you.
