[Bug 1575274] Re: System Crash during 16.04 Upgrade from 14.04


@MeadeBaron any chance this machine has an Nvidia card? Had a similar
issue on one of my hosts with Nvidia. I was able to boot into an older
kernel from the Grub boot menu and upgraded the Nvidia driver from 340
to 361. Then the 4.4.0-21 kernel(current as of this post), would boot.

  System Crash during 16.04 Upgrade from 14.04

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I was upgrading 2 machines from Trusty to Xenial. I had success on my
  laptop...but had a system crash on my main machine running Ubuntu-
  Studio 14.04. I have tried  creating LIVE-USB's to reboot and repair
  the install...but to no avail. No matter what I do I arrive at the
  same "Call Trace" and "end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to
  kill init! exit code=0x00007f00" message.

  The system freezes at that point and there is absolutely no forward
  movement from there.

  HELP! My machine is completely crashed...I believe this is Ubuntu's
  answer to the "Windows Blue Screen of Death".

  Please advise how I can repair my Ubuntu Studio 16.04 installation.
