    The upgrade to Lucid Lynx from Karmic on Parallels Desktop 5.0 was flawless, but when I restarted the system—and this has happened every time since the upgrade—the following happens:

    Normal Parallels boot screen appears. This may be followed a very low-res Kubuntu boot screen which appears briefly. It then launches into several blink-and-you-miss-it messages.

    Alternatively, several lines that end in the text "unreliable DMA position" appear.

    In any case, after all that comes the following:

    After logging in and getting generic computer/login information and the "Welcome to Ubuntu!" message comes the following:

    Running the above command gets me this:
    The problem is, this is a virtual machine and I am not given any boot options upon starting the VM (other than a checkbox in the "Configure" dialog to give me the option to select a boot drive). Help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is related to the 64 bit version of Kubuntu

    I had the same problem when I upgraded 9.10 64 bit to 10.04. A clean install of 32 bit 10.04 into a new vm works fine.
