View Full Version : [ubuntu] 2nd time user, 1st time problem.

March 4th, 2011, 01:34 AM
I've used Ubuntu 10.10 before and loved it, but to my regret I re-installed Windows XP out of impulse because I couldn't use Windows based programs.... ANYWAY, I re-downloaded Ubuntu 10.10, downloaded the USB configuring program, and have successfully installed it to the USB drive (Now named F://PENDRIVE). So I restart my PC, hit F12 for the Boot Menu, hit enter on the USB Drive and the Ubuntu menu pops up, I choose Run Ubuntu to check it out to get re-acquainted. BUT, after it show's the file loading screens I get an error at the bottom that reads EXACTLY

(initramfs) Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

What gives!? :confused:

Try using UNetbootin rather than Pendrivelinux to make the bootable USB drive. UNetbootin link is http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

Someone may be able to help you get Grub repaired so that you don't have to re-install everything. If you didn't delete the Windows partition or your Ubuntu partition, they should still be recoverable.
