View Full Version : [ubuntu] The disk driver / is not ready yet or not present

May 20th, 2011, 11:10 AM

I was upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 and the laptop turned off.
Once I rebooted, I got this Message :

The disk driver for / is not ready yet or not present
continue to wait; or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery.

My laptop Model: Toshiba Satellite A200.

Thanks in advance.

take a live USB installation of Ubuntu 11.04 and boot from that..

That upgrade got borked. It happens sometimes.

You may be able to repair it, but at least for now you can back it up.
