Upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) on Colinux

After upgrading my colinux filesystem from Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04, it stopped booting. It would just freeze after the message:

EXT3-fs (cobd0): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) on device 117:0.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 140k freed

After some time I discovered that "mountall" was blocked trying to mount the root filesystem. So I just removed the line:

/dev/cobd0 / ext3 defaults 1 1

from /etc/fstab, and everything worked perfect.

Removing the line was not easy, however, as I couldn't boot the system. I ended up download andlinux again, in order to get the original base.vdi, boot from it, but adding my filesystem image as a block device too, and then mounting and editing fstab. This is a snapshot of the settings.txt file I used in order to boot and recover fstab:
