View Full Version : [ubuntu] Failed to mount filesystem on boot after upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04

April 30th, 2010, 05:34 PM
After upgrading and restarting my laptop, The purple splash screen hangs, and the terminal gives this message.

mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb does not exist
mountall: mount /proc/bus/usb [354] terminated with status 32
mountall: filesystem could not be mounted: /proc/bus/usb

Also the boot menu does not show (I cannot open the recovery mode).
Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is the same issue, but in my 'media' directory, I don't have any of my other partitions appearing. I've got a windows one, and a 9.10 one.

Any ideas?

Also, my 9.10 boot is knackered - won't load any of the gui since I installed 10.04.

See http://ubuntugenius.wordpress.com/2010/05/07/fix-an-error-occurred-while-mounting-procbususb-bootup-error-after-upgrade-to-lucid/


sudo gedit /etc/fstab

Find the line “none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=125,devmode=664 0 0” and either comment it using a # or delete the line.
