View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems Booting up?

January 2nd, 2009, 04:08 AM
I'm currently trying to install Ubuntu 8.10 onto a simpletech external USB HD. My current OS is windows vista. My cpu is AMD 64 Live. Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE. The PC is an HP a6230n pavillion Desktop.

Problem: After the Cd starts, I choose to try Ubuntu. The loading bar pops up, and appears to load. Shortly after, the screen goes blank and then dumps me into a shell called "BusyBox". My name there is 'initramfs'. Not sure why it's doing this. Any solutions for this total noob?
