I don't quite understand what actually happened. There should not be a 
cache of anything, when you are at the grub level everything that happened 
before (in the previous boot) is quite dead.

Oui... only sources.list, and then do an apt-get update. 

I've never done that, I think you might (or not) hit a gotcha with the 
sound drivers, the ones that come with the acpi kernel are newer than the 
ones that come with the normal kernel so you might get an error saying 
that it cannot find the right rpm (just maybe). Let me know if that 
happens, I'm trying to think what's the best way to fix it but it depends 
on exactly how it complains.
