Need some help and hoping someone here can give me a hand. I have a system that has went to a Kernal Panic and not sure what I need to do. I have a screen shot attached that shows what is going on. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
I have upgraded my motherboard, cpu and gpu. I am not running a gigabyte Z87X-UD4H-CF with an i7-4770k and a AMD Raedon 290. Trying to boot into ubuntu at the grub menu I get a "Kernal panic - not syncing attempted to kill init" and the system hangs.
My workstation OS has been Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for a while now. Yesterday I tried to install Mumble using Ubuntu Software Center and the installation quit after giving me some errors. When I restarted the system some time after that, I started receiving kernel panic errors when trying to boot the OS.
I updated Ubuntu and when I rebooted, it won't boot. I get a black screen with the error Kernel panic - not syncing:Attempted to kill init
I use Ubuntu 12.04, my linux-image is 3.2.0-33-generic-pae,recovery mode goes into the same error (Kernel panic - not syncing:Attempted to kill init) and Ubuntu upgraded my previous linux versions as well and they all go into that same error.
yes this problem might have been reported and solved for a lot of people on the Internet but i haven't found anyone who is running their Ubuntu 12.04 from a USB drive. i crashed my hard disk a long time ago and now am running Ubuntu from a USB drive since a few months. i have rebooted and booted a lot of times.
vaio vgn-n365e,intel core duo, 2gig ram, intel 945 mobility graphics, intel wireless,dual boot w/win7
Did a clean install using fc17 xfce spin. Earlier kernels work fine, but this latest creates a kernel panic.
I've reinstalled the kernel but same problem perists.
