My hard disk is bad and instead of buying a new one I would prefer to boot from my external hard drive. I installed 13.10 on it. When I boot I get
1.168876 kernel panic- not syncing: no init found. try passing init)option to kernel I followed the instructions here:
I have tried booting with the hard drive connected and disconnected. I installed with it disconnected. Seemed to hang up with it connected.
when I look at the files on the hard drive, I notice there are no files under Home/gary except "Examples."
I ran a smart test using GSmart Control and the quick test says all is normal. The extended test keeps crashing. I tried copying a file to the drive but I get an error message saying the operation was completed with errors. The file is not copied to the drive.
Thanks for any suggestions.
