    Re: initramfs: what does it mean?

    i have the same problem after I have installed Kubuntu 7.10 with wubi 7.10. I do this several times but it's at each time the same problem

    that appears on my screen:

    BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-3ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built in commands.

    (initramfs)_

    what can I do?

    the same error is happening to me.

    i think it means that ubuntu/wubi can't find the boot disk ?!?

    What version are you using and when exactly does it happen? First reboot after windows installation or second reboot after linux installation?

    I tested it with all wubi 7.10 versions (every time the same error). And it happends after the kubuntu installation, when linux reboots the system.

    thx

    when you boot, press esc when given the chance, then press 'e'. Edit the kernel line, remove "quiet splash" and add "debug". Then press enter and "b"

    Re: initramfs: what does it mean?

    Now I get this:

    (initramfs) [ 24.872000] usb 4-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
    [ 25.048000] usb 4-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    [ 25.064000] input: Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse as /class/input/input3
    [ 25.064000] input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse] on usb-0000:00:1d.3-1

    [ 317.708000] usb 4-1: USB disconnect, adress 3

    then i test the same without a mouse:

    this error
    (initramfs) [ 25.508000] ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[00030d49530311f3]

    If you did as mentioned there should be a log under / or /tmp or /var/log (don't remember the path on top of my head)
