ALERT! /dev/disk/byuuid/... does not exist. running on vmware
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 12, 2010
I tried to upgrade my ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 on my virtual machine using vmware workstation 5.5.
After the upgrade grub can't find my hard drives with the message:
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/... does not exist.
After this I downloaded the live dvd to check the uuid of my disc, but sudo fdisk -l does not list any devices at all.
Also tried sudo blkid with the same result.
The virtual machine has 2 virtual discs connected, and everything was working before the upgrade.
SOLUTION TO: BusyBox & Alert! /dev/disk/byuuid/ ...<your UUID>.... does not exist

FINALLY FIXED THIS ONE!!!!!!! (Can you feel the emotion?)
I was dropped to a shell and stuck in Busy box. None of the suggested commands (or added delays) worked! It' kinda hard to upgrade when you can't boot.
I didn't have a old kernel to select (GRUB) because I just installed clean. It booted but not after an upgrade.
SOLUTION: (From Busybox shell hell.)
From my other saved partition with Hardy 8.04 and using "chroot" (you could use a live CD instead), this is how I fixed my Jaunty 9.04 fresh, beta install; where I could finally boot past (Dropped to shell) busybox again. I looked everywhere and tried everything. NONE of the buzybox suggested commands worked for me. I do NOT have RAID! Their was no UUID or /dev naming error. Only, the following worked for me.
I still do not know why the newly installed kernel failed to boot after upgrading it. Perhaps it didn't upgrade correctly or something because once I got back in, using chroot, I had to run the apt-get fix command
initramfs /dev/disk/byuuid does not exist

I have an EEE PC 1000HE that has been running Ubuntu 9.04 with ext4 for a few weeks. This morning, I ran apt-get upgrade and it installed all the new updates. I rebooted and its dropping me to initramfs.
Alert! /dev/disk/by-uuid/xxxxxxxx does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
I have tried adding rootdelay=90 but that didn't change anything. If I cd /dev I do not see any disk directory. I have also tried editing grub to boot from /dev/sda1 instead of uuid=xxxx but I get the same thing.
Xen 4.1: /dev/xvda2 does not exist
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 8, 2012
I'm new to Xen, and playing around with it. I managed to set up Xen Hypervisor 4.1 on a Ubuntu 11.10,
and I also managed to create a DomU with Ubuntu 10.04, using xen-create-image.
We have other servers with an older version of Xen on Ubuntu 8.04, and I tried to "copy" one of the DomU guests from there onto my
I did this by creating logical volumes on the Xen 4.1 machine, rsync them with the logical volumes on the old server, and
manually creating a config file for the new DomU guest.
I followed the procdure described here:
In the step: " Cloning the Host OS on the Guest root Partition", instead of the Host OS, I cloned the OS from a DomU guest on a different Xen Server.
The config of the DomU is:
kernel = '/boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-12-server'
ramdisk = '/boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-12-server'
vcpus = '1'
memory = '8192'
root = '/dev/xvda2 ro'
Alert /dev/disk/byuuid...does not exist

Ubuntu 8.10 on Dell Precision T5400 with SAS HDD.
This is my first attempt at installing ubuntu and I have hit a problem. I installed from CD (3 times now) and created new partitions. Grub was installed on /dev/sda1 (/boot). When I boot I get the error:
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/3.. does not exist. Dropping to a shell.
The link exists and I can mount /dev/sda2.
lrwxrwxrwx /dev/disk/by-uuid/3... -> ../../sda2
The cmdline looks correct.
If I select the recovery mode, the scsi module load and there are messages that
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3
Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type
[sda] Write protect off ..
However I end up with the same error.
I could use some help now as I am not sure what else to try. I don't know where the rootdelay is set.

I get the above error when I start Firestarter, and after I clear this another that says "no event information will be available". I'm a total Noob so may have made a schoolboy error, any help would be gratefully appreciated.

This is my first question on here so be gentle.
I've been trying to get Zorin OS 8 gaming to work on my new gaming rig; here are the spec:
Nvidia 750ti -- 2gb vram
Samsung SSD HDD 120 gb EVO
no cd/dvd drive
Originally it had a chinese version of Windows 7 installed. From my mac laptop I threw Zorin 8 Gaming onto a usb with UnetBootin.
Here I had some problems with usb recognition - apparently thats a thing with Gigabyte mbs. Fixed it with some BIOS shenanigans.
Then I had some issues with the video card; I was getting a black screen on boot. Fixed it with "nomodeset" in the edit commands.
Also had some keyboard and mouse issues - fixed with more BIOS shenanigans.
Then I finally got into the Zorin install. Installed it, and after reboot I got thrown into the Grub shell - again -which I have no idea how to manage. I fixed it by essentially reinstalling until with every permutation of inst
