linux crash


Good morning, I bought and intel celeron nuc
Put a 24gb msata, 2gb ram and a wireless card in it
fired it up, put linux mint 16 cinnamon as my OS and xbmc.
Worked great for a day then while installing a repository it black screened and froze.

After I rebooted it says "kernel panic not syncing attempted to kill init"

I have tried to just boot from live usb but also does not work.

I am not very tech savy but is there a way to wipe the system through bios? I also tried to boot ubuntu from usb with the same fail.
I can enter grub command but that's it.

I am not sure what to do from here....Please help

Thank you for your time

if you cannot boot from usb probably your box is dead. either RAM or motherboard or ???. Need more info.... Can you post some error messages or boot log?

1)Try booting with Live USB on another computer.
his will ensure that your Live USB works.
2)Please ensure boot sequence in bios as USB.
After installing Linux and before trying anything ,update the system with at least Level no 1 updates.Linux Mint 16 operates fine for Newbies without use of terminal or without adding new repositories.

AMD/Celeron

Problem with AMD/Celeron processosers is CPU temperature increses even beyond 60 degrees Celcius.Which in turn causes failure of motherboard.There is no default driver like AMD Cool & Quiet for Windows,However there is "cpulimit " which can be installed through Synaptic.I think this should come as a default.Also please install X Sensors which indicates temperature of cpu.

just a long shot probably wrong but did you do a up date after the install and not update your grub just a shot in the dark. I know when Ubuntu does there update it is supposed to run a script and do that for you. But may be not.
new repo new kernel could be broke. may want to boot a live cd back up your home folder and reinstall it. The Ubuntu way.

Yes I did the update, when I did the initial install. Now I can't even boot from a live flash drive or from ssd at all to undo anything. I don't know what to do other that maybe send it back
