You can't have ejected your boot drive (partition). If you had, you couldn't do ANYTHING. Linux won't let you. Assuminy you're using Ubuntu 12.04 or later with the Unity interface, what happens when you click on the files icon in the launch bar? What happens if you open a terminal and type ls? – Marc Jun 10 '13 at 3:41

You ejected you hard disk driveS? Multiple disk drives? Did you do this while your computer was booted up? – DaboRoss Jun 10 '13 at 5:37

That's weird. Do you include angle-brackets in the command? Do NOT include them, they are there just to show you that <device> is something you must change according to the real device name. – KamikazeCZ Jun 10 '13 at 4:16
