booting from a partition

Postby menta » Fri Aug 15, 2008 4:38 pm

Well, the first of all is my english sucks.
ok, the thing is that im trying to boot Linux Mint 5 Elyssa XFCE CE RC1 (BETA 025) from a partition, and i added this to grub:
title liveCd
root (hd0,5)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz cdroot=initrd.gz root=/dev/sda6
initrd /casper/initrd.gz
boot

And starts to boot fine untill a message apears "target filesysteme doesnt have /sbin/init"
I search that phrase in google but the people that have that problem cant enter to the installed linux and i do.
Maybe something is missing in the grub?
thx

I don't understand. You say your system ' starts to boot fine untill a message apears "target filesysteme doesnt have /sbin/init" '

Then you say ' the people that have that problem cant enter to the installed linux and i do. '

Are you able to boot your Mint install and get to the desktop ?

When you power on and boot the computer, does everything stop when "target filesysteme doesnt have /sbin/init" appears ?
