You solve it by following the guide.
I've got a 32Gb Hi-speed USB thumb drive that I'd like to partially use for BT. By that, I mean that I want to preserve a majority of the space for my files and stuff without cluttering it with BT files and such. Thus I deviated from the guide for creating a persisting installation.
I created one 22Gb FAT32 partition and one 8Gb'ish EXT3 partition, syncing down all files to it. Installed the GRUB boot loader OK, pointing to the EXT3 partition.
Rebooted, loaded the GRUB menu OK. Everything seems fine momentarily. However, after a short while booting, I end up stuck with the ash shell: (initramfs)
I figure that somewhere some conf is pointing statically to a wrong partition or something. True? Or is it due to my deviation from the guide that states one FAT partition for the files from the ISO and one EXT3 partition (I'm not clear on what that partition is for. Persisting files?).
I'm not quite used to ramfs stuff...
Any ideas in how to solve this?
I have not tried booting from a DVD or on a different system. I have booted from the iso in VirtualBox and also did a persistant VM install, so I know the iso is fine.
My system can't mount that file.
