Ok, I suspect it's having trouble finding a specific kernel version. There's a little trick you can use in mint to always load the most recent kernel, add this to the bottom of your /boot/grub/menu.lst file (needs sudo):
- Code: Select all
title Mint Latest
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet splash
for the root options, copy the info from an existing entry in the "AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST". As a quick check, the number in kernel line should (almost certainly) be 1 more than the final number in the root line. Also the letter should correspond to the first number with a=0, b=1 etc.
Reboot, and select the new "Mint Latest" option in the boot menu.
