Can't bootup into Linux Mint

Postby bookman761-1 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:20 pm

I have a dual boot laptop with Windows 10 and Linux Mint (sylvia). When I reach the grub menu and select the linux mint option, I get the following screen.

I am lost on how to get back into my Linux Mint. I have tried the suggestions systemCtl and journalctl without sucess.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

We will need some context:
- has Mint ever worked, or did you just perform the install ?
- if it was working, what were the last things you did before getting this problem?

Issue the journalctl -xb command that is suggested, copy the output (e.g. with a camera) and post it here. This should contain valuable error messages.
Also copy the output of inxi -Fxz and post it here, so that we get information on your hardware.
