View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem upgrading from 8.04 to 9.04 Help please!

October 22nd, 2009, 12:04 AM
I used the synoptic manager to upgrade. All seemed to be going well until the restart. The following is what appears when it's starting up:

Starting up ...
Loading, please wait...
usplash: Setting mode 1024x768 failed
usplash: Using mode 800x600
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the System wait for the right device?)
Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/c86aaa69-f362-47fd-afb6-ac27de8be985 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.


Don't know what to do after this point.
