yes this problem might have been reported and solved for a lot of people on the Internet but i haven't found anyone who is running their Ubuntu 12.04 from a USB drive. i crashed my hard disk a long time ago and now am running Ubuntu from a USB drive since a few months. i have rebooted and booted a lot of times. i had to update the source file because i could not open software center, i have restarted after that as well.
now am facing this error :
kernel panic - not syncing : attempted to kill init!
' panic occurred, switching back to text console ' and a lot of other text and error before that. i recently ran a few softwares on wine but didn't work ( i think that might have to do something with the error ).
Please let me know what i can do. i have a few important documents on the drive but i can not copy them from the USB because well i don't know where on earth it stores it. i even tried searching the file names but it did not work. please look at the photo for the errors.
