There is four options one being Linux Mint 8 Helena, linux 2.6.31-14-generic and so on. I get the same responce on all of the four options.
I don't know why your UUID would change from boot to boot, unless you changed your partition size, maybe do the Memtest 86+
However, once you get to the grub menu, try editing the Helena boot menu option. Delete the search line, and change any root=UUID entry to one with /dev/sdX format.
Also, you can press "c" drop to a shell and start running commands like
- Code: Select all
Once you determine the correct device, you can do stuff like "linux" and "initrd" with tab completion to get the correct entry, then finally issue "boot".
Read this over for examples: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2
Stop using UUID in your menu once you get into Helena.
