I managed to fix it - it was a bit of an extreme fix but a fix nonetheless!

I only have the one IDE controller - it turns out the problem was that 
initramfs-tools trashed all initramfs images so no kernels would boot 
any longer, even newly installed ones.

The repair involved removing all kernels (whilst chrooted to live cd), 
udev, initramfs-tools, initrd-tools, reinstallation (by installing 
ubuntu-minimal), then installing latest kernel.

I reported my repair to launchpad/forums
