    Help booting xubuntu (12.04)

    i actually switched laptod off
    myself, before this began
    popping on my screen. And i
    have only xubuntu installed in
    the laptop. (No dual boot) mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-
    a201878442ff on /root
    failed:invalid argument
    mount: mounting /dev on /root/
    dev failed: No such file or directory
    mount: mounting /sys on /root/
    sys failed: No such file or
    mount: mounting /proc on /root/
    proc failed: No such file or directory
    target filesystem doesn't have
    requested /sbin/init.
    No init found. Try passing init=
    bootarg. BusyBox v1.18.5 (ubuntu
    1:1.18.5-1ubuntu4.1) built-in shell
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in
    comands. (iniframfs)
    now thats were am stuck, i've
    read other article were people
    have this same problem, it is
    usually caused by dual booting, but am not dual booting.
    And i have another problem my dvd/cd drive is busted and i
    can't boot from usb.
    All am asking is, is there
    anyway i can solve the issue
    without live cd?

    Can you get to a terminal or tty?

    If you can't, then I don't know what to tell you

    This sounds exactly like my problem. I am on ubuntu 12.04 and only have this stalled into my computer. Except the commands won't work or anything. I have a feeling this is a type of virus.
