    Question Fresh Install of Ubuntu dropping to shell cant boot

    i downloaded and installed the ubuntu 10.04 . after it was installed it asked me to restart my pc which i did.. and the desktop came ok.. then i shut it down and re assembled my pc as i removed the windows disk to avoid any unwanted issue..
    then i started my pc but as it was to boot light went off ( here are frequent blackouts. unanounced ) so after 1 hour the light comes back and i start it and get this black screen saying some error like uuid changed (?) and there is a prompt with initramfs and it says droping to shell..

    the very first line says
     /scripts/init-top/udev: line 24: /sbin/udevd: not found
    it also says like
    Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems: -Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline) -Check root delay = (did buy acomplia the system wait long enough?) -Check root=(did the system wait for the right device?) -Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/7e729b99-xxxxxxxxxxxxx does not exist. Dropping to shell! Busybox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands
    please help
