<Crtl> <D> required to contiue boot process

Postby technoshaun on Tue Apr 05, 2011 5:31 pm

My on board network card in my laptop took a major dive and I had to remove and replace it with a USB WiFi device. However, when it went out it caused a problem in the start up and I'm getting prompted with entering the Root password to perform maintenance or <Ctrl> <D> to continue booting. Plymouth will not load at all. Does anybody know where I can look to fix this? I'm sure a reinstall would fix it but I would prefer to not use that option unless all else fails.
It isn't about it being free. Rather, its about the freedom it brings.

Check grub when you start up to make sure that you are not booting into recovery mode

No I wish it was only that simple. This prompt comes up just before GDM is called to load so I'm assuming its something in the X-windows start up routine that somehow got flagged.
