View Full Version : [ubuntu] Boot problem with 9.10

October 19th, 2009, 07:41 PM

while booting it stucks at the splashscreen ang gives me this

Check cryptops=source=bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev -r
Alert! /dev/by-uuid/Ocafa742-69c-4(usw...) does not exist. Dropping to Shell!

BusyBox Version ....

I checked the UUID of the bootpartition and it isnt equal to the one in the error:

sudo blkid
/dev/loop0: TYPE="squashfs"
/dev/sda5: UUID="40916d54-8a77-41b3-863e-0171c0197ec6" TYPE="ext2"

Do I have to change it anywhere?

Are you booting a Live CD? If yes, then it sounds like a defective CD.

Check the downloaded ISO image md5sum, and make sure it matches the one on the download site. Then burn it at your slowest burn speed, "DAO" mode if that is available.

Looks like a known issue, I wish I knew why though.
