20.406853 kernel panic- not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)

can i fix it with something like this??

May be you must upgrade "initrd-tools" to breezy version.
I had solved this problem by uncomment some of breezy archive in /etc/apt/sources.list, and run "apt-get install initrd-tools".

but the thing is that i cant get further after that "kernel panic" message
