View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Booting Problem

September 9th, 2008, 11:26 PM
Hi everybody I am new to Ubuntu, but um slight problem.

This is like the 6th time i've had to do it..

because when i install ubuntu in windows (XP) it works , and everything is ok.

i can login and i am using it right now, i can go back to windows xp too, but the thing is, after booting windows if i try to go back to ubuntu again, i get this busybox black screen with something like initramfs. And i try exit, i try quit, i've tried all the commands in the help section, and nothing seems to work...

appreciate the help.:confused:

when you boot, press esc when given the chance, then press 'e'. Edit the kernel line, remove "quiet splash" and add "debug". Then press enter and "b"

someone else had this problem too.

Are you using Wubi, or is this an actual dual-boot?

Have you seen this post in any of your (7) reinstallations?
