    kernel panic - not syncing - VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block

    I was able to boot into 2.6.31-14
    take note what linux-images show up
    mine was linux-image-2.6.31-16-generic

    linux-image-2.6.31-14-generic

    so scroldown to linux-image-2.6.31-14 "enter"

    it booted into desktop


    the fix that worked for me



    1) Go to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager

    2) search for linux-image

    3) Locate the package "linux-image-2.6.31-16-generic"

    4) Select the check-box next to this package and choose "Mark for Reinstallation"

    5) Apply this changes

    6) Reboot your machine



    problem solved.



    I hope it works for all of you as well.

    thanks for sharing your experience!
    I have tried your methode, it works half way. but after I did as you told, I met a new problem. After reboot, I can't get into the system anymore, and it showed(as I made a photo) in below.
    I have tried some command, and it told me that there is no kernel found(or anything like this, I can't remember it exactly). any idea how to solve this?

    Success!

    I was stuck at the same place as fanndian, until I tried the instructions found here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...04/comments/24

    Note, though, that on my first few tries the boot failed and dropped me into a shell.

    A helpful note in the full thread (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...b2/+bug/477104) suggested that putting in sga1 in the first step might have had the system looking in the wrong partition. swapping for sga2 did the trick!
