when i boot my server pop this kind problem how i can fix this? it skip this if i write exit. I tried ubuntu 10.04 server and 11.10 server same problem on 10.04 an 11.10.

 Gave up waiting for root device.  Common problems:
     - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
       - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enought?)
       - check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
     - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
    ALERT! /dev/mapper/Dell-850-ville-1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

    BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
