Please post the whole thing. If you click 'Go Advanced on the editor on this board, you can attach a file. It has to have a .txt extension < 256 k in size.

Make a copy of dmesg, easy way 'cat dmesg > dmesg.txt' then attach the copy.

I had a quick look at the messages you attached, can not tell if this is the first, middle or last problem.

If you can't get your Ubuntu to boot, an alternative would be to reinstall Ubuntu to sda1 with your installation disk, as long as you do an update and not a new install. Your /home/user will still be there, and you can boot onto the partition. I would assume that the key for the encrypted files would be in /home. The rest of the OS files will be new.

austintx,

Please read the original posters first post. He knows he can re-install, the problem is the /home is encrypted, and can not access it. I'm not sure if it is on a separate partition.

How would I go about doing the update? Because it could work. If I just update it and get all my stuff back on that partition I should be alright, I have my external hard drive back so this shouldnt be a problem again.
