I have a ccorrupted upgrade to 12.10 how do I fix

Asked by Farrell Swain on 2012-10-27

I upgraded to 12.10 today and it was corrupted. Iam even on-line through a file on my Desktop I opened with fireFox. I downloaded it again at the library and have it on usb but can't use it to boot. I am booting I belive with an older grub. I can't rember the version I used to boot. So Maybe a frsh install off the disc if I could make it bootable?

Hi ,

you have to make the USB bootable.

Try to use this program : http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

and install again the Ubuntu to USB . Unetbootin will make the USB bootable automatically . Then boot from USB and install again the Ubuntu 12.10

Thank you
