Hi all,
Just a month before 10.10 release,ubuntu 10.04 has created a problem for me.This post is more like a problem statement because I haven't figured out the solution yet.Last night I was upgrading my kernel to 2.6.32-24.After that my network manager was not running.I thought something was wrong with upgrade.So I rebooted and was shocked when I saw the grub menu.Previously, Grub menu used to show kernel versions 2.6.32-21, 2.6.32-22, 2.6.32-23 and their recovery options.Out of that 2.6.32-23 could not be used to boot.So,I used to boot through 22.But now,I could see only 23 and my system did not boot.when i tried to edit this option(generic kernel 2.6.32-23 in grub menu screen), I got first line as recordfail as shown in above image.

Then I tried to search on internet but found nothing important.Tried live cd of ubuntu 9.04 and tried to reinstall kernel.tried "sudo update-grub" and also grub-pc.Then checked /usr/src of 10.04 where I saw all previous kernel images along with 2.6.32-24.Now it looks like latest kernel couldn't be written but previous images were removed and only remained kernel is corrupt.So,I am not able to boot into ubuntu. Right now only solution is to reinstall 10.04.hoping a better solution from someone.
