Hi all! I'm a Linux/Ubuntu noob who has recently bought a brand new HP laptop, nuked the Win 8 OS that it came/w & installed Ubuntu 14.04LTS. After DL/installing apps & setting it up a bit I decided to use gparted & partition my HDD for an additional OS, isolate programs from files, adjust swap, etc. All went well until I was prompted to reboot which I did & now I'm stuck @
" BusyBox v1.21.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.21.0-1ubuntu1) multi-call binary.
usage: chroot NEWROOT [PROG ARGS]
Run PROG with root directory set to NEWROOT "
Which invariably produces: (no matter what command I enter?!?)
" (initramfs) boot from BIOS
/bin/sh: boot: not found "
I'm quite confused @ how to proceed here?
My primary concern is the health of my machine through/after this is worked out.
That said, I'd love to not have to re-install Ubuntu/apps, etc. as I was partitioning the HDD because I had gotten it to a nice back-up place & felt ready to set it up.
Like I said I'm new to Linux/Ubuntu & waayyy behind on my terminal coding, but I could really use some pointers here & I'm not usually hard to teach.
Embarrassingly yours, WS.
