Re: "Gave up waiting for root device"
I just reformatted the drive and installed Zorin OS 6 in place of Kubuntu 12.10, and it has the exact same problem. Installed fine, made it to splash screen, drops to BusyBox. Reboot, and it "Gave up waiting for root device."
Zorin now boots to nothing but a black screen with the flashing white cursor. No clue what's going on, but I'm going to reinstall everything another time and see what I get.
