Hello, before posting, I used the search button and my problem is similar to others but I don't get the same error.
I used the tutorial "Install BackTrack Live to USB". When I boot from my USB, I get this error.
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; Is /dev)
ALERT! does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
I checked my md5 with the tool provided from the developer and it seems fine.
I hope someone find my problem, it's my first time!
I also tried on my laptop, same errors. Please help!
I'm bumping the thread after a week.
