Ubuntu :: No Root Filesystem Defined?

Mar 1, 2010

ive been recently experiencing some problems with my ubuntu studio 9.10 setup, with the filesystem failing to mount. after deciding to try a new hard drive and cable, as well as clean install ubuntu, fedora and now mint, im still finding no filesystem.im using a live cd created for mint (like it ). having clicked install to hard drive, all is well until the partition manager, where all the boxes are greyed out. clicking forward produces a box saying "no root filesystem defined". i see there are a few on here from a few years back and having read through them, cannot find a fix for myself.

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting 10.04 To RAID Drive With Root On RAID0?

Mar 21, 2011

I ran into this and found a non-trivial solution so I thought I'd share in case anyone else ran into it.I have two 200GB drives so I thought I'd install my system with RAIDed partitions for /boot, / and /home. I would use RAID1 for /boot and /home because GRUB2 can load the kernel from a RAID1 and I thought the extra reliability for /home would be nice. (I may second guess /home on RAID1 once I get to test performance.) I chose RAID0 for / to provide faster application loading.I prepared the drives using a Live CD because I'm not confident that I can do what needs to be done during installation.First I partitioned the drives as:


hbarta@olive:~$ sudo fdisk -luc /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders, total 390721968 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes


At this point I could restart and boot from the system hard drives and proceed with configuring my system. I'm not positive that it is necessary to add the modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules but I do know that alone is not sufficient. An earlier attempt was to install grub (install-grub /dev/sda; install-grub /dev/sdb) within the chroot and I found that also was not sufficient. I have not listed it above because I think it was not necessary. But on these two issues, I'm not going to reinstall again from scratch just try...


Another possibility is to install using the Alternate CD. I did not try that but it may provide better RAID handling. Last week I installed 10.04.2 LTS Server to a RAID1 and it did not experience this problem. However I do not know if it is RAID in general or RAID0 that led to the issues I encountered.

Ubuntu :: Installed After Windows7 - Can't Return To Windows 7

Oct 16, 2010

I have a Asus EEE PC 1005HA netbook, which I use with Windows 7. I've been abroad for the last 2 weeks, and when I came back I found out my younger brother has installed Ubuntu on it.

When I asked him he told me it's no problem, and he didn't overwrite Windows, just installed on another partition.

However, I'm trying to get back to my original operating system and I have no idea how. Obviously, he has none either as he is just an impulsive 15 year old.

I'd like to either uninstall ubuntu and return to my windows OS, or just choose at boot time which OS I want to access (I don't really mind having a linux onboard, I assume it has it's merits).

Ubuntu Installation :: Fix Non Booting Windows7 Partition After I Installed 10.04?

Apr 17, 2010

I installed 10.04 and Grub won't boot into Windows7. I attempted to fix the problem through several different methods and nothing worked and I fear I made the booting problem worse than it was to begin with. I can boot into Ubuntu just fine, just not Windows7. Black screen with a cursor upper left hand. Windows7 repair disk does not help and using Windows7 command line repairs did nothing.

So here is an idea I came up with: Is there any way I can back up the Windows partition exactly the way it is, reinstall Windows7, and then somehow lay down all that information directly over the install to make it exactly like it was?

I doubt it is that simple, but is that possible? Like basically unhiding all the hidden files, copying them into a folder on my Ubuntu installation, reinstalling Windows7 and just copying them all back?

Ubuntu :: Root File Not Defined

Oct 14, 2010

I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 64bit Desktop onto my 640GB hard drive. I used Wubi to download and install it onto a 100GB drive partitioned out from my 640GB hard. After I reboot and log into Ubuntu, it says that Roof File is Not Defined. The only thing I can do is to force my computer to shut down as so i did. After that I went to the demo mode of Ubuntu 10.04 as I can't do anything on the Normal Mode.

Ubuntu :: No Root File System Is Defined

May 18, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop version for around 1 month then i stoped using after installing windows 7, as I knew that there were the 10.04 version coming. So when it was released i went to torrent download the file and burned it on a cd. After that i insert the cd and use the wubi installer in there as i want to install them side by side. so after installing ubuntu i restarted the system and got into it. After a few minutes it appeared this error message "Not root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." So i was expecting it to be downloading problems. I went on to ubuntu website requested for a CD and it came today. So i inserted the cd did the same thing again.

I'm having a problem and it seems like partitions during the dual boot install.

Here's EXACTLY what I get...

Menu: Allocate drive space
Erase and use entire disk
X Specify partitions manually (advanced) [X denotes I chose this option]

I have 3 partitions on my gateway laptop...

[graphical bar across the top]
sda1 NTFS - 10g - weird partition w/recovery software or something from Vista
sda2 NTFS - 140g - Windows Vista
47g FREE SPACE [this is where I want ubuntu]


I click "Install Now" and I get this error:

OpenSUSE :: Bash Aliases For Root - Where They Are Defined

Sep 26, 2010

Output of my #alias command looks just as normal as one would expect:
alias +='pushd .'
alias -='popd'
alias ..='cd ..'
alias ...='cd ../..' .....

And still whenever I (as root) type in bash
which would be short for
#ls- l
i get output of the command
#ls -al

So where aliases for root overwritten? Usually I would expect .bashrc in the /root directory. Or at least .alias file. But there none of those in my current /root. So, my question is where root user gets it's aliases from? This concerns only root user. Normal user has .bashrc and I made up my own aliases in .alias and that's works jut fine. And yes I could make .bashrc file in the /root and .aliases where I would define my own things.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Root File System Is Defined - 10.04 / RAID

May 3, 2010

I am running a RAID0 array, with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed.

When i install LL10.04 through Wubi, it installs fine, reboots, continues the installation procedure, then it gives me an error box "No root file system is defined".

I have attempted pressing the "OK" button 10 or 15 times, however it does not progress. The box just keeps on popping up. My only option is a hard reset.

I've tried downloading the latest version of Wubi from the official website, and allowing Wubi to download ubuntu itself, and still nothing.

I do not want to create a new partition for Ubuntu and use the GRUB loader. I have a multi boot system and would like to stick to the windows boot loader.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Root File System Is Defined Partitioning ?

Dec 2, 2010

So I keep getting this error from the 10.10 installer:

"No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu."

However the partitioning menu shows no disks or partitions at all.

The disk browser can however see and mount both partitions from my disk.

It is a terabyte SATA drive and the bios has been set to IDE.

It has 2 partitions with windows installed on the first partition.

Gparted can see both partitions but claims it cannot find the mount point of the second partition. (both are NTFS)

I have attached a screenshot.

How to proceed from here so I can install Ubuntu.
