I installed in ubuntu inside Windows XP. It works perfectly for 2 months. Recently I met with this problem:
mount: mounting /dev on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: no such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn’t have /sbin/init.
No init fount. Try passing init= bootarg.
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu7) built in shell (ash)
Enter ‘help’ for a list of build in commands
Ubuntu forums members said use “fsck /dev/sda1 ” command after you boot with Live cd. I tried but it is failed.
Finally one of the other thread helped me to recover.
I planned to share my problem and solution with you. It will help you to recover the ubuntu if you meet with above problem.
- Ubutnu.iso file
- 2GB Pen Drive
With unetbootin or universal usb installer, extract iso inside pen drive.
Restart and boot with Pen drive by pressing F10(differs).
Run the ubuntu from Pen drive
I have installed the ubuntu in my Hard disk named as Ubuntu
click places in the top of the bar.
Open the hard disk that you installed Ubuntu.
Sometimes you may installed ubuntu inside c drive itself. Find which is c drive and open it(for mounting).
Open the Terminal
type this command.
If you are hard disk name is “ubuntu”(ubuntu installed drive), then try this:
Now you are in this directory:
Type this command to work as root :
Now type this command:
e2fsck -p ./root.disk
wait for a while.
When it is finished working, type this command:
e2fsck -f ./root.disk
and wait for a while.
Now you are able to boot with your ubuntu..
Having doubts? post your comment. I will try to help you.
