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 :: 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.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 No Root File System Is Defined

Feb 11, 2011

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]

[Code].....

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

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

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:
Code:
alias +='pushd .'
alias -='popd'
alias ..='cd ..'
alias ...='cd ../..' .....

And still whenever I (as root) type in bash
#ll
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.

General :: Installing Ubuntu From A Flashdrive Alongside - Ngside Windows - Error Message - No Root File System Is Defined

Jul 8, 2011

I can use Ubuntu from my flash drive, but I want to install it in a partition alongside windows. When I try to do this, I come to an 'allocate drive space' window, but whatever I do I get the error message: 'No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I just don't know what this means, or what to do next. I'm loathe to ditch windows, and I don't want to have to use a flashdrive all the time.

It has created a mutliple boot system though.. so now I can choose.. it must have installed via a live session I did prior with the cd..

Ubuntu Installation :: [64-bit Win7] Wubi "no Root File System Is Defined"

Jun 11, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu 11.04 from my USB-stick for about 2 weeks now and I really enjoy the OS. So I ran Wubi in windows a couple of times resulting with the same problem after rebooting and showing a error "no root file system is defined" during the finishing stage of the installation.

I did the bootinfoscript and it shows that mounting failed.

Code:

Ubuntu Installation :: "No Root File System Is Defined - Correct This From The Partitioning Menu"

Dec 23, 2010

I have installed ubuntu onto a 64 bit Windows 7 machine using Wubi. [Note: I thought that I was downloading 10.10, but the installer said it was 10.04] When Wubi gave be a choice of which drive to install on, I choose my second drive (B) My Windows 7 resides on (C)

The install seemed to take a long time, but I think that was because it was downloading the whole operating system install files. When it was finished downloading it asked me if I wanted to reboot, I selected yes (reboot). Then the boot screen gave me the choice: Windows or Ubuntu. I choose Ubuntu and then I get the error:

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

Damn that Ubuntu splash screen was so beautiful and I thought I was home free. I have read a few threads here and other places on line. I have read that I may have to partition the drive. Was my mistake in choosing the B: instead of the C: drive? If I partition can I partition from inside windows using the computer management software it provides? Do I need to partition at all? Or can I just move the installed files to the C: Are the files movable? In the ubuntu directory I see a file: uninstall-wubi.exe. Should I use this and try a reinstall onto the C:
