Hi all,
After applying some updates onto a Ubuntu web server, I rebooted it.
However it will no longer start, and generates this error in XenCenter:

22/12/2011 09:57:45 Error: Starting VM 'Web Server' - Using <class 'grub.GrubConf.Grub2ConfigFile'>; to parse /boot/grub/grub.cfg - WARNING:root:Unknown directive load_video - WARNING:root:Unknown directive terminal_output - Traceback (most recent call last): - File "/usr/bin/pygrub&quot;, line 746, in ? - raise RuntimeError, "Unable to find partition containing kernel"; - RuntimeError: Unable to find partition containingkernel

This server is mission-critical, so we need it back as soon as possible.
Any ideas guys?
thanks for the help,

The suggested method was to install using a method know as LiveUSB:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent. Unetbootin is available
in Ubuntu, so the Windows method mentioned on the page will work as well.

You have made the mistake of installing using the normal method of
installing on a Hard disk. This will not work as it does require at least 4
GB to give you a working install that can be easily updated at a later time.

I used to perform this for forensic purposes. This method only works
for cloning a sdb that is smaller than sdd8. The partition table will
be exactly the same and bootable. However, assuming sdd8 is 200 GiB,
it will be reduced to 20 GiB since the table is a clone of sdb. As
such, unless this is a short term arrangement, this way of cloning is
not recommended.

What's a good application for showing what sort of disk has been put
into the CD/DVD drive?

I currently have xfburn installed and that doesn't tell me anything about
the disk media.
