Ubuntu: newest kernel not loading



Question:

I got problem (maybe after automatic update - not sure) with loading ubuntu (14.04 lts) - it is now showing weird graphic during booting - something like this LINK and then black screen insted of login screen (but it would still play sound of login screen). When I start previous kernel from GRUB menu it boot normaly. After few tries to solve it I gave up and just purge that newest kernel thinking it is corupted, leaving that working one as newest + update GRUB. After reebot, that previously working kernel is doing the same thing as that deleted one - weird graphick and black login screen.

What is going on?


Solution:1

Is your hard disc partitioned such that you could install Ubuntu 14.04 again in a separate partition, in so doing making a clean install free of any clutter? Does the same problem arise if you simply boot from a live CD? I have four partitions (sometimes more), and one is the current 14.04, the other is 12.04, there is a separate partition where I keep all my data files called 'Global Docs', and then there is the 'Swap file'. I update the Ubuntu installations in 'leapfrog' fashion; meaning that I shall overwrite the 12.04 partition with say, 16.04, when it emerges.
