Unhappy initramfs on bootup

staring up...
loading, please wait the initramfs

BusyBox v1.1.3(Debian 1:1.1.3-5 ubuntu12) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter'help' for buit-in command.

I always got this message when I boot the system & the worst of all, I have to type "exit" before the system starts. what is this? & how can I get rid of this? I use Ubuntu 7.10 and upgraded to 8.04. I would be very glad if somebody could help. Thank you.

nb: please email me to this for any solutions.

see where the problem is.

You may be missing some driver that is required in the initial stages.

hard disk spec?
bios setting?
