If a system with Ubuntu Linux does not shut down correctly, but suddenly fails due to a power failure without UPS backup, it can at the next start attempt for error message No init found. Try passing init = bootarg. come. The computer will not start in this case. With a file system check you can usually fix this problem.
When starting the computer, the following error message appears (in the example with Ubuntu 10.10):
[1.917875] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 02342000 [...] [1.921820] --- [end trace 68f29c77e5e41c76] --- Killed mount: mounting / dev on / rott / dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys on / rott / sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / proc on / rott / proc failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem does not have requested / sbin / init. No init found. Try passing init = bootarg. BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1: 1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (Initramfs)
A file system check often fixes the problem.
- Start from a Linux Live Boot CD or from the TK USB Stick .
- Perform a file system check of the boot partition (in this case / dev / sda1):

The system can usually be restarted now.
