wubi kernel panic not syncing VFS...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 6, 2009
I installed ubuntu 9.10 using wubi
Verything worked fine, until I got the infamous:
[2.012847] kernel panic - not syncing - VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block (8,5)
I realized that the disk in which ubuntu was installed was almost full (just a 150 MB free)
so I made space (14,3 GB free out of 67 GB), checked it for error from windows, and defragmented it, but I still get the same error
oh, one more thing, I've also notices that this directory
is empty... is that ok??? or maybe I lost grub's configuration...
I don't think that's the case, cause grub seems to be runing fine... who knows...
[SOLVED] Boot problem after installing Ubuntu 11.04 "Kernel panic not syncing VFS"...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 16, 2011
So I upgraded to Ubuntu Desktop v12.04. After doing so, I'm unable to boot the machine.
The complete error message is:

Hola, ayer me pasó algo de lo más extraño. Tengo dos PC con Ubuntu 10.04 enfrentadas que tenían un kit teclado/mouse inalámbrico marca microsoft que se interferían mutuamente.
Cansado de escuchar quejas por ese tema compré un kit genius ps2 y saqué uno de los inalámbricos y puse el kit ps2 todo con la pc encendida. Configuro la distribución del teclado, cierro todos los programas y pongo reiniciar para asegurarme que cuando vuelva a encender la máquina tenga todo configurado correctamente. Para mi sorpresa luego del bip del mother y la pantalla con la el nombre del mother me encuentro con la siguiente leyenda.
kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block (0,0)
Después de un rato de sufrir y evaluar si iba a reinstalar o qué lo solucioné de la siguiente manera. Gracias m4v.
Bootié una live session de 10.04
Abrí una terminal
sudo fdisk -l
Ahí vi que la partición de sistema que bootea era /dev/sda5
sudo mount /dev/sda5
Error after 12.04 install/update: "Kernel panic not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount"

A frustrated perennial newb here. After installing 12.04 on a section of my hard drive, it seemed to work. I was able to get into the OS (without the GRUB screen coming up) and I installed all the updates and the nvidia drivers.
But when I restarted it, I got a black screen with "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown lock (0, 0)
blah blah blah...
I'd write the rest but my laptop's dying. The posts I found on other sites were completely unhelpful. Like I said, I'm a beginner, so I need it explained to me, step by step.
Argh! This is frustrating. Things always seem to break when I upgrade...
Thanks for your help, in advance.
Kernel Panic not syncing VFS

When I try to boot up my laptop, I get a black screen and error message that says: "0.9009321 Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)"
I've googled the error message and all I'm getting is that people tried to update their system and booted and got the same error. I, on the other hand, did not update my system but somehow I'm getting this error.
I've downloaded a new liveCD, and I want to retain all my files on the laptop. What should I do?
Note: I'm a complete beginner so I'm afraid I don't really know my way around the terminal. All help is much appreciated.

Hello, I need help fixing my grub2;
My problem error at startup;
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Today I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to a USB Drive using "UNetbooting" so that I can install Ubuntu 10.10 on my friends computer. I obviously made a mistake and somehow altered my own Grub2 by pointing the UUID to the USB Drive "I think".
Using UNetbooting from; http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/#install I used Ubuntu 10.10 ISO and pointed to my USB Drive as /sdb and started to create the bootable USB.
I have 5 Kernels so to post this problem I logged into the 2nd kernel from the list, but if I try to use the 1st Kernel it fails to boot up and I get this Kernel Panic error message.

I tried installing ubuntu-8.04-desktop-amd64 on my Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 DG33 machine.
Im getting this error for other options too - run ubuntu without installing, check CD for defect.

hey guys i recently fried my motherboard on my server, its old so whatever. Anyway way i got my friends old board which has been sitting around. the only problem with the board was that the SATA controllers didn't work. to me that didnt bother me because hey i got a SATA add on card and i just disabled the SATA ports in the data.
so i set the box up and tried to get the old hard drive to work. so i tried to boot it without any changes.
this install didn't boot nor does any other bootable CD. i get the same error.

Serious problem trying to boot into my Ubuntu partition this morning - when I select either Ubuntu or recovery mode from GRUB, I get the above error message. I've been using my current dual-boot Windows XP/Ubuntu 10.10 set-up stably for ~2 months now with zero problems, up until today.
Yesterday I installed the most recent security updates, and logged off as normal with no trouble to use some Windows proprietary software. Windows partition worked, and still works fine, but whenever I attempt to boot into Ubuntu now the machine hangs on this 'kernel panic'.
The error message seems almost identical to that posted here:
Any advice would be greatly appreciate - I'm running the only Linux here in a business setting, so I don't have any Linux trained tech-support to draw upon.
