I've successful used Boot Repair to get out of booting binds in the past, but this time I'm stuck and was directed to share the following web address in a trusted forum such as this: http://paste2.org/IZVKL8Uz

In case some additional information might be helpful, the problem arose after Windows crashed and did some kind of registry defragmentation when restarted. That led to multiple BSODs with error messages like this:

>problem detected and windows shut down to prevent damage
>win32k.sys
>PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
>make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed...if problems continue, disable or remove newly installed hardware or software...disable BIOS memory options (but there was no newly installed hardware or software that I'm aware of)

That was followed by the following error message

>error: no such partition
>grub rescue>

Using Boot Repair, I got back to the BSOD and the associated error messages listed above, but now I'm stuck there again.

Using GParted, I see that where my UberStudent 3.0 partition should be there now seems to be only "unallocated" space.

Any ideas about what's happened and what I might try? Thanks. --Brian

It sounds like your harddrive is dying. Rescue whatever files you can and abandon it.

Not what I'd hoped, but thanks for the reply--and the awesome distro!
