Ubuntu: Blackscreen after splash because upstart change [closed]


After I attempted to fix an issues with the apt package, I can't boot my Linux 16.04 LTS anymore. It will stuck at a blackscreen after the Ubuntu splash screen.

This is the problem I had with the apt package: vivid - failed to connect to upstart: connection refused

I tried these commands as a fix:

sudo apt-get install upstart-sysv  sudo update-initramfs -u  sudo reboot  

After the reboot Ubuntu is stuck at a complete black screen after the splash logo appears, I tried to get into the grub menu, but since my installation is already pretty "unclean"[1] I couldn't get into the grub menu.

[1] I installed Ubuntu on a Asus X205TAE which has a UEFI, and I had to do a lot of things to get it working in the first place. This is the guide I followed: https://github.com/lopaka/instructions/blob/master/ubuntu-16.04-install-asus-x205ta.md
