Ok so I have exhausted all google searches about my problem so see if you guys can help me.
I have a dual boot windows xp and ubuntu 9.10 system. The Ubuntu is not booting with the following error: "Kernal Panic - not syncing VFS: Unable to mount root fs in unknown block (8,2)"
I have an ubuntu 9.04 CD which I have booted from the drive so that I can attempt to get into the file system. I have performed the following.
1. Started a terminal
sudo mkdir -p /media/ubuntu
sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/ubuntu
sudo chroot /media/ubuntu
I get the following error:
"Cannot run command '/bin/bash': No such file or directory"
Now I have tried many combinations of the following.
1. I have checked the PATH and it points to the /bin directory.
2. I have attempted to mount /proc and /sys as well.
3. I have tried using a Knoppix live CD as well
4. Note that the bash file DOES exist in the /bin directory
Please note that I as very new to ubuntu and linux in general so please be specific in any replys!
