When Ubuntu hangs in Initramfs...

If you dual-boot, and windows crashes, or there's a power failure and you try to boot in Ubuntu next, the boot will hang in "initramfs tools". And there's not much you can do with this tools.
The only way to start in Ubuntu again is to:
-boot in Windows
-Start>Shut Down
-Power Button>Ubuntu

In other words, you need to boot in Windows and do a proper Shut Down of the system.
