    Default Backtrack4 Boot Issues from both USB and HDD Install

    Alright here we go...

    I have installed Backtrack4 to my HDD from a USB Live drive and am having issues booting from either source. I am dual booting with Windows 7 and an Acer revcovery partition but I don't think this is the whole problem since i get these errors when booting from the live USB install as well. Here is a list/summary of some of the errors I get:

    initramfs
    ata1.00
    exception Emask
    timeout
    HSM violation
    ATA bus error
    status: { DRDY ERR }
    error: { ICRC ABRT }
    SError: { Proto TrStaTrns UnrecFIS }

    From the USB drive it will eventually give me the root@bt prompt and I can startx and it works however, all I get when booting from HDD install is an (initramfs) prompt...

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanx in advance!

    Same problem for me.
    Booting from usb live just needs to start x.org, but booting from the hdd drops into busybox.

    jglide, what kind of partition did you install Backtrack on ? Logic or primary ? Extended ?
