I know this question has been asked several times on this forum, but none of the answers given worked for me.
Tonight I did an install of Ubuntu 13.04 on a brand new Acer Aspire laptop. I formatted the complete harddisk, removing the existing windows 8 partitions. Installation had no problems. After rebooting the system hangs and says: "Kernel panic – not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel".
I am able to boot the liveUSB.
What I have tried
- Complete re-install of the system. Same error appears
- Started LiveUSB, mounted filesystem, restarted. Same error.
- Started LiveUSB, tried sudo fsck /dev/sdb1, mounted filesystem, restarted. Same error.
I am quite new to Ubuntu, what next steps can I take? How can I pass init= option to the kernel?
Thank you very much in advance!
