EDIT: don't do what I did in this question, check out the answer section below!
Screen shows up with this after running Ubuntu from grub64efi:
gave up waiting for root device. Common problems: boot args (cat /proc/cmdline) Check rootdelay= (did the system wait for long enough?) Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?) Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! UUID=1234-etc... does not exist. Dropping to a shell! BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs) _
I made dualboot of Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04.
How I got this far:
- First installed Windows, updated it, drivers and bios.
- made Ubuntu live-USB with Rufus (Uefi option or both).
- I manually changed from bios(F2 on DELL-logo screen on start):
- Secureboot disabled,
- Enabled legacy options ROMS,
- added option to boot sequence to the USB,
- and changed boot sequence to UEFI, run that new boot option(F12 on DELL screen)
- I made 30GB free partition space in SSD with GParted on live-USB-ubuntu.
- and Installed Ubuntu 16.04 on it. (Option with something like: "on side with windows")
- restarted, pressed F2 to go to bios and added Boot option of new partition and looked up (FS0:)/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi
- After that it loads grub and when I select Ubuntu and it gives me that initramfs-shell.
ls root gives nothing, same as with
I'm pretty new to Linux, so I'm glad at least 1 OS works on it, though it would be great if I could get Linux working on it too..
I run that Boot-Info-program in live-usb.
it gave me this on uefi mode: http://paste2.org/6aO3Lf5B
and this on legacy mode: http://paste2.org/P5U5ms9V
