So one day out of the blue, with really no warning whatsoever, I booted Ubuntu just as I always do and the load progress bar came up and went halfway and then I received the following error message:

Booting 'Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic'

Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x07
The current working directory(i.e., the relative path) is /ubuntu/disks
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x3000, size=0x220d70]
[Linux-initrd @ 0x1ee4f000, 0x810733 bytes]
Loading, please wait...
ALERT! /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.10.2 (ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1ubuntu6) built-in-shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

And then I get a terminal that looks like this:

(initramfs)_

Help??

*bump* on behalf of OP

Maybe the installation didn't work as well as it should. One possibility is to remove the installation via Windows control panel->Add/remove programs, and to try the installation again. Don't forget to take the usuall precautions to protect your data (Backup etc)

Help??if you installed ubuntu with wubi, you need to boot to windows first to "mount" the disks, might as well defrag windows while there then reboot back to Ubuntu
