    Startup issues - Filesystem won't mount


    Hi All,

    I'm having some trouble with my Ubuntu 10.04. It had been working normally, and now my startup isn't occurring normally. The bootloader shows my Windows install and two different revisions of Ubuntu. Upon letting it load Ubuntu, however, it goes to BusyBox v1.13.3 and says "built in shell (ash)" and presents me with a functioning command line.

    I'm comfortable with working on the command line, but does anyone know where to start with this?

    Code:
    mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/80fbafae-fe17-cco1...  on /root failed: Invalid argument
    
    mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: no such file or directory
    mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory
    mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: no such file or directory
    
    Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init
    No init found. Try passing init = bootarg

    can you quote the two different boot options for Ubuntu,
    apart from the normal one.
