We have upgraded from version 11 to the latest version - would take a long time to go back?

No,  It's a back up. You should see 2 kernels in the grub menu,  you will need to manually select the other one.

When it reboot, hit <F12>, <e> on 'Ubuntu'.

You should see other kernels, hit <enter> or <b> to boot from it.

Sorry we had to rebuild the server.  Even Canonical could not resolve this problems.
