So, I boot up my netbook...and the main screen comes on, announcing Acer and whatnot. Then, it goes to to a black screen with a cursor in the upper left hand corner that blinks. For a long time.
Then a screen pops up. Generally it says something like this:
mount: mounting /dev/disk/by
and a lot of stuff following that
A lot of it involves:
/root/sys failed: no such file or directory and target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init." No init found. Try passing init = bootarg.
What can I do? I'm fairly certain my netbook is functioning, but is my software not? Is this a matter of reinstalling, or can I do something else to fix?
