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.
My linux server RHEL 5.4 showing kernel panic & server model is "HP blade server BL460c G6"
"Memory for crash kernel (0x0 to 0x0) notwithin permissible rang
Red Hat nash version 220.127.116.11 starting

I'm new with all this Ubuntu and Linux programs so please bare with me.
So today my niece gave me her laptop she got from a tutor program and asked me to fix it since it didn't boot all the way. So the problem is once I select Ubuntu with Linux 3.0.0-15-Generic from the GNU GRUB (Ver 1.99-12ubuntu5) loads up the initramfs prompt.
