http://ubuntuforums.org – My machine shut down and when I rebooted I got the following: Screen init failed Gave up waiting for root device. common problems: -Boot args (cat/proc/cmdline) -check rootdelays = (did 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/ade5eaa2-2aba-4d7a does not exist Dropping to a shell! BusyBox v1.13.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1 ubuntu7) built in shell Extra 'help' for a list of built in commands. I did a self check on the hard drive and it came back as fine. What else could I do to get this machine to boot up? (Hardware)
