I repeated the installation of Ubuntu and reached the exact same point.
Specific things I did during install:
chose to mount to "/"
partitioned 8.5GB U: drive in windows as FAT32
-during Ubuntu i switched drive to ext3
the first intall completes with a successful GRUB install to mbr.
then, when I reboot, GRUB appears and I choose to install the first listing for ubuntu
it ran a prompt and stopped at the same point...
the post with the three lines of error code followed "starting ubuntu..."
so it went:
Pivot_root: no such file or directory
/sbin/init: 428 : cannot open dev/consoles no such file
Kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init
also, on a Hebrew website there was code box suggesting I boot ubuntu from the live cd and edit line 429 of
dev/console to /dev/console
anyone awhere of this fix?
