View Full Version : [ubuntu] Boot stops at "Checking initramfs"

October 27th, 2009, 11:23 AM
Running 9.04. Started preparing for dual boot. Put 9.04 CD and tried to boot off it to "Without any change to your computer" but boot failed early on. Removed CD and rebooted but now HDD boot failed. Rebooted to recovery mode and stops at "0.024694] ACPI: Checking initramfs for custom DSDT.
What can be done to get it past this stage.

Thanks for any help!

Try changing your hard drive configuration to IDE in your bios

Welcome to Ubuntu Forums. Even though you mean well, please refrain from offering help unless you know the subject with some depth. This can cause the person posting to miss out, as those with the correct answer will see the post being answered and move on to another thread.

If you look at my problem, you can see that the HDD is detected, the bootloader loads and the OS then starts to load.
If the IDE config was wrong, you would get a HDD missing error.

Good old Ubuntu has self healed! It is now booting fine.
