Ubunut udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured

SkyHi @ Monday, November 01, 2010
here are the steps:

1.Turn off and restart your computer, while keeping your finger on the “ESC” button.

2.When “GRUB” comes up on the screen while booting, hit ESC to get to the GRUB menu

3.Your current kernel will be highlighted (in my case it was 2.6.32-24-386); use the up/down arrow keys to pick another kernel to use temporarily to boot (in my case, I chose 2.6.32-24-generic)

4.Then press “enter”; the machine should continue to boot up somewhat normally, though it may look a little funny.

5.Log in.

6.Go to a terminal (Applications>Accessories> Terminal)

7.Type in Rufus's command “sudo update initramfs -u -k 2.6.32-24-386” (Note: you should substitute whatever the numbers of the bad kernel are, mine happened to be 2.6.32-24-386)

8.When it finishes, X out of the terminal, go to the shut-down menu, and choose “RESTART”;

9.That should do the trick.
