View Full Version : [ubuntu] toshiba portege 3480 hardy unetbooin error

Hello all,

I'm trying to install hardy on a portege 3480. I have taken drive out of the machine and run it via a lynx build desktop and installed hardy via unetbootin onto the 20gb HD. the machine then boots to the menu where you chan choose live, memtest etc. on choosing the live option to boot the machine up it then bombs out with a error.
"kernel panic - not syncing: VFS unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)"

any ideas guys. I'd love to get linux on this machine. i have read that tftpd is a possibility to get this running but have run into issues setting it up hence looking at removing the HD out for a unetbootin style install.
