Comment 22 for bug 333040

If it can be avoided, I would prefer not reinstalling the whole
distro. It is dual booting with vista, sharing a data partition.

Essentially what would be the best, quickest, easiest, and least time
consuming process to get back up and running AND help get a fix so
this doesn't happen to other people who upgrade to the beta or release
candidate.
