At boot, Grub2 load both a kernel image and a file system in RAM. This RAM file system is called initramfs.
To be able to boot from disk, choose if you can the third line in boot menu.
If you can't boot from Ubuntu installer media, and choose "Try" to open a live session.

One way which can solve issue is to force check of file system holding /boot folder. It's usually sda. Run command:
    sudo fsck /dev/sda1
This check can take some time.

Another way is to reinstall Grub2: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling%20from%20LiveCD
