One of my network shares is down, which isn't a big deal, but now my Ubuntu instance fails to boot properly. On boot it will display the screen giving me the option to skip the mount, or do a manual mount, however it won't respond to keyboard input at this point. Pressing escape (I believe it is escape) gets away from the splash screen and shows the boot log, ctrl-alt-del works, but nothing else.
The last status message is "mountall: mount //mydrive/ failed with status code 1" yet I can't bring up command prompt or anything.
How do I get to the prompt so I can edit fstab and delete the share? I've tried to ssh and vnc into the machine, but it doesn't respond to the requests. I can ping it and see the shared folders on the machine, so some modules have loaded.
