Computer: Acer Aspire 4752 Intel core i3-2330M, 6GB RAM,500GB HDD
I had the 64-bit elementary OS Luna with the following disk partitions:
- /dev/sda1(400GB) as /home
- /dev/sda2(30GB) as /root
- /dev/sda3(5gb) as swap
- /dev/sda4 as boot(efi?)
Rest as unallocated space, I installed elementary OS Freya (64bit) using the "something else" option and leaving my home partition as is. Now when I boot I am stuck at this screen:
I tried the manual recovery but can't get any further than this:
Now I tried pressing Ctrl+D, the black screen then says
Warning : Fake initcl called, doing nothing . Well, nothing happens and I have to force shutdown, running
startx doesn't help either just a completely blank screen appears. This is my primary computer and I don't have anything to backup my data to, any solution which doesn't have the risk of loosing my data would save my day.
PS: I used the same username and login password as before. Now would be investing in an external HDD.
