Hi,
After I upgraded ubuntu 8.10 and installing the updates I am unable to log in to my system. This is the following problem I'm having.

Boot from (hd0,9) ext3 9557a59a- ff9f -451b -95cd –b51fcd5c99dc

Starting up…
Loading, please wait…
usplash: Setting mode 1152×864 failed
usplash: Using mode 1024×768
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat/proc/cmdline)
-Check root delay= (did the system wait long enough?)
-Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat/proc/modules; ls/dev)
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/9557a59a- ff9f -451b -95cd –b51fcd5c99dc does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.10.2 (ubuntu1:1.10.2-2ubuntu7) built-in shell(ash)

Enter ‘help’ for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs)


Please help me out with the problem.

Verify that 9557a59a-ff9f-451b-95cd-b51fcd5c99dc exists:

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/

You should see 9557a59a-ff9f-451b-95cd-b51fcd5c99dc listed. If not then you need to change /boot/grub/menu.lst to point to an existent root partition.

Thanks for the reply, but I would like to know how I would change that?

Also I would like to know how to get the data back from the ubuntu drive, incase I can't login?
