    HP Pavillion Kernel Panic

    Hello fellow Ubuntu lovers.
    I am currently attempting to install my beloved Ubuntu (version 9.04) on a laptop. It boots from the live CD, and it goes through the entire installation process without a hitch. Then, on reboot, thats when I receive it. The error that makes me cringe in frustration. The dreaded KERNEL PANIC *cue scary music*

    Ok, all joking aside, this kernel panic is causing quite a fuss. The error is exactly as you see it.
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)
    The computer is a HP Pavillion Entertainment Notebook PC (the sticker on the back says HP Pavillion dv1000)

    So my question is, what is going on, and how can I fix this. I can take apart the computer, but that would be a last resort.
    Ground Control to Major Tom...

    Try this:

    Restore Grub

    find /boot/grub/stage1

    root (hd1,0) <-- wherever stage1 was found

    setup (hd1)
