I did install a new linux kernel from deb packages and run reboot. This new kernel replaced my current one. But the new kernel caused corrupted and it fails on booting (no console and no X... just black screen). I expected the new kernel will be added to GRUB menu but no I dont see the old kernel.

How can I bring back to live my old kernel using Live-USB?

PS My distro is Debian 7, old kernel 3.5, new kernel 3.6

I would just reinstall Grub: – Ramhound Jul 2 '13 at 15:23
Not an answer, but maybe the problem isn't a corruption - maybe its simply a problem with video support. You can test this theory by editing grub by adding "nomodeset" to the grub boot on the kernel line and then seeing if you can at least boot the kernel. (see… for how to do this) – davidgo Jul 2 '13 at 20:13
