    Problem in boot of new kernel


    Hi;
    I have ubuntu 10.04 on VirtualBox and get kernel source 2.6.39-3 from kernel.org and compiled it.
    After boot, I see this message:

    The disk drive for /root is not ready yet or not present.
    Continue to wait or press S to skip mounting or M for mount recovery.

    How can I solve it?

    Thanks.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    How did you install 10.04 on the VBox virtual drive, and what commands specifically did you use to configure/build/install the new kernel.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I solved the problem by using mkinitramfs then update-grub2.

    Thanks
