Upon performing an upgrade from Ubuntu 17 to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, my PC was in standby mode, thereby interrupting the last 1/4 portion of the upgrade. When trying to boot in Grub loader: "Advanced Options"; "Linux 4.7.2", the machine loads the drive and asks for password. Then the screen just goes blank. If I boot into 4.7.2 recovery mode, I am able to access Ubuntu 18.04 and login.
Grub configuration is at i8042.reset nomodeset. Previously it was set to quiet splash. Neither has solved the boot issue.
What can I do to solve the interrupted upgrade process (to where the upgrade did not successfully complete during running in Ubuntu 17), and to where I can boot into Ubuntu without recovery mode?

Is there anything I can do to where Ubuntu 18.04 can boot normally? Without having to choose Recovery Mode? How can I correct this issue?
