View Full Version : Kernel panic on boot

January 23rd, 2011, 09:45 PM
This is my first day with linux, btw, so consider me a total n00b.
I was trying to fix my Acer One 751h's resolution, and came upon this:


After using the terminal i restarted to update. But then I get this (and i can't do anything):

VFS: Cannot open root device "sda5" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted 2.6.35-22-generic #33-ubuntu

And more numbers, let me know if I need to write them down here.

What happened? I can't access ubuntu anymore...
