Hey everybody. This question is really for those who know Linux well. I'm only posting here cause I'm sorta desperate - I don't expect a response.
I'm installing Ubuntu Linux on an external hard drive and having some trouble:
This is my first time attempting to install Linux so I was sorta expecting something like this. I am completely new to this so bear with me.
I'm attempting to install to an external hard drive and got done with all of the installation up until GRUB. All seemed to go well until it had to reboot. Upon rebooting I hit F12, chose to boot from USB (the Ext. HD is USB connected) and got an Error 17 and it just died...
More specifically, it says:
Botting 'Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-386'
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xde
Kernel /vmlinuz - 2.6.12-9-386 root=/dev/mapper/Ubuntu-root ro quiet splash
Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
Press any Key to continue
Then it just dies.
Any help would be appreciated.
