Linux Mint 6 XFCE Install Problems
Hello all, complete newbie here. I've done ubuntu before, but new to mint...
So I had Vista, created a Mint 6 XFCE liveboot USB... worked great... went ahead to install, did partition and everything...
Now, turning on computer to access Mint for first time, and I get:
[0.349402] ACPI: Aborted because junk in gzipped archive.
[2.972023] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)
This is on my laptop, Acer Aspire 4530.
What do these errors mean? More importantly... how do I fix it?
Thanks all, I really appreciate the help.
Also, I've found this Mint wiki on the issue
and thoroughly read through, but I'm very confused! I see that since I cannot boot (well I can in Vista but that's no help) then I need to run the live usb and edit something to do with UUID's... according to this wiki. Well, I want to be very careful so any suggestions? Can you translate this wiki solution into more basic terms?
