I downloaded 13.10 a couple of days ago and have been getting the Kernel Panic not syncing vfs mount root (0,0) message. Apparently, the 13.10 wasn't downloaded fully and I got this. Can anyone tell me how can I fix this without reinstalling and erasing my hard drive?

Reading package lists... Done
