Can he boot up via the CLI. If so, run the following commands

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/networking start

sudo apt-get -f install

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo update-grub


A little help would be useful though, as I don't know the issue but the above may help.
When booting up hit the escape key and check for error details...
Also check the /var/logs file for more information regarding certain erros.

If that doesn't help, come back with some more details, and I will try and help you.

Hope this helps,

This thread might apply: http://askubuntu.com/questions/169600/fix-grub2-after-installing-ubuntu-12-04

Ubuntu's docs and forums are a much better place to ask these questions.

Join #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net

They may be able to help you further but it's best if you've shown that you've tried other sources.
