I am getting a kernel panic "not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" with kernel 4.13.0-43 on Ubuntu 17.10. I can boot just fine with 4.13.0-41. After a successful boot using 4.13.0-41 I can get 4.13.0-43 to boot if I boot in text mode and remove the quiet and splash options. Anyone have any ideas as to what is happening? My disk drive is a 250Gb disk with one partition (I accepted the default options when I installed the system).
After checking the SMART status, lets check your file system...
To check the file system on your Ubuntu partition...
- boot to the GRUB menu
- choose Advanced Options
- choose Recovery mode
- choose Root access
- at the # prompt, type
sudo fsck -f /
- repeat the
fsckcommand if there were errors
If for some reason you can't do the above...
- boot to a Ubuntu Live DVD/USB
gpartedand determine which /dev/sdaX is your Ubuntu EXT4 partition
- open a
sudo fsck -f /dev/sdaX# replacing X with the number you found earlier
- repeat the fsck command if there were errors
sudo update-initramfs -c -k 4.13.0-43-generic# update initramfs
reboot# to version 184.108.40.206
