I downloaded the Ubuntu Live CD and tried to chroot into the partition

or something similar. Tried specifying other commands to no avail. It
looks like the kernel can't see the underlying command structure, even
though it mounts correctly during boot and from Ubuntu.
After you mount /dev/sda2, see if /mnt/bin/bash exists; if it does, try
"ldd /mnt/bin/bash" and see if the libraries exist in /mnt/lib.
Thanks for the response, /bin/bash was there and the /lib folder was
untouched afaik. Bit the bullet and reinstalled over the weekend and
all is well again.
