Unhappy Unable to boot Bodhi 5.1.0 AppPack from the Hard Disc

I`ve just installed Bodhi Linux 5.1.0 AppPack and I`ve not been able to boot it from the hard disc as since the very first time I tried to boot the system I`ve seen this error message:
Gave up waiting for root file system device. Common problems:
Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! UUID=B092-8511 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.27.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.27.2-2ubuntu3.2) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
I`d really appreciate your help.

If this is happening when you're trying to install, I think it might have to do with the method you wrote the iso to usb. Do not use unetbootin or etcher. Use dd (linux) to write it.

Or if you're using windows, use rufus and select the dd option, not iso. See attached picture.

Some people reported on the support discord that the latest version of rufus for windows doesn't present this option. So use an old version, for example

But if you already installed and are getting that kinda error, then it's not this issue...

In the newest version of Rufus (3.10 at this time), the "DD"-option is NOT part of the initial GUI-Form, but once you start the process you can select DD/ISO option by answering a Pop-Up-Question.
