    [SOLVED] Ubuntu won't load, not even from LiveCD

    When I try and boot from the LiveCD I get a message saying:

    Code:
    BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) Built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands
    
    (initramfs)
    Same happens when I press "install ubuntu", too.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? I have a Ubuntu partition on hd0,0.

    When I boot as normal I get "Error 19: Cannot mount selected partition"

    I'm guessing it's because the install is trying to boot from root hd0,2 (which was the ubuntu partition before I moved it)...so how do I get it to boot from hd0,0?

    I went through some command line process from GRUB's site but to no avail...

    It's a dual-boot system btw. I'm using Vista and EasyBCD to help me boot into Ubuntu.

    I'm a bit confused here; are you trying to boot from the Live CD or from the HDD?

    I was booting from the HDD..until it stopped working.

    It doesn't matter now I fixed it. I went into EasyBCD and simply altered the NeoGrub configuration so that it was booting from hd0,0.

    Simple as that.

    This can be marked "solved."
