I decided to install Ubuntu 12.10 onto a 16gb usb drive I had to spare, and to do this I followed the instructions here: http://rudd-o.com/en/linux-and-free-...live-usb-drive
All the steps went fine, it all seemed to be working fine, until I tried to boot the usb. I ended up at the grub command line, and so I go ahead and set the root and the kernel, and then boot it. When I do this I receive the following message.
I have searched extensively and have come to no answer, just stuff about changing the kernel, but I used the same kernel that the liveusb boots from, and that works fine. It seems to be unable to see the partition I just booted from, or the partition with the system files.
VFS: Cannot open root device "(null)" or unknown block(0,0) error -6
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
