Boot to non responsive GRUB
Mint 11 64 bit
GNU GRUB 1.99 rc1-13ubuntu3-1mint1
Been running Mint 11 with no problems until all of a sudden it boots to GRUB (no other distros installed) which it never used to do, the screen is oversize for the display, (RHS diappears into limbo) and GRUB does not respond to keyboard Up/down arrow keys etc.
replaced keyboard (have plenty of spares)
plugged into different USB port
Still the same problem.
Booted from Mint12 64bit DVD version and it runs from the live CD, all keyboards work in any USB port, I can see the system disk and all the files I know should be there.
I don't want to replace with Mint 12 as I have some system tweaks that I would like to prepare before I move. (SSD, tmp folder in RAM, nfs to connect to NAS, network printer etc etc) and MINT 12 install says it wipes my installation.
Backup is on NAS so I would have to do most of the mods to get it live to restore from it anyway.....
Is there anyway to get past GRUB and boot from the SSD?
