Why would you delete the Kernel?

i deleted kernel, install other version droplet, ubuntu, centos etc.. but alway droplet go grub... my droplet try configure network and the finsh back to grub.

  • Same thing is happening to us. We did not delete our kernel. Tried using the troubleshoot steps given by the support - it still keeps going back to the grub. And NO reply from the DO support about getting it corrected.

I'm getting the same problem and I found the solution!

Short Answer:

1) Go to your Dashboard and Power Off your droplet.
2) Go to Kernel tab and change your kernel to use: DigitalOcean GrubLoader v0.2
3) Go to Access tab and click Launch Console
4) You should see the console screen with some options to choose (hit Enter key if you don't see any)
5) Choose the interactive bash command option
6) Type "reboot" and wait, don't close the window
7) You'll be prompted to select from 3 options. Choose option #2 (boot kernel from GrubLoader)
8) Done

Your droplet should start correctly again (at least in my case)

Long Answer:

My droplet went down and unable to boot (always in recovery mode) after the NYC1 Hypervisor Reboots maintenance completed by DO:

Looking further into their post:

The most important information:
*
If your distribution is not included in the list of patched versions below, we highly recommend you move your data to a new Droplet running a version that is receiving security updates. To simplify the act of patching, we have recently updated Droplets to utilize a GrubLoader, which allows Droplets that use our in-control panel legacy system to boot into internally installed kernels. On certain legacy Droplets, this may cause issues if the kernel is not upgraded.*

My short answer above is based on the above information from DO.

  • hello YUNIARS, in my case, my droplet dont have a kernel, only option is

    MOUNT RECOVERY KERNEL

    when i click the message is :
    THE IMAGE FOR THIS DROPLET DOES NOT ALLOW KERNELS TO BE CHANGED.
