ComTech: IT Support Stirling

No init found. Try passing init=bootarg

No init found. Try passing init=bootarg. This error has come up frequently over the last couple of days on my Debian LXDE system. After one too many times I decided to go looking for a solution.  After searching the net I found that the error message is due to errors on the hard disk.  The solution to fix the problem is as follows:

1. Get your hands on a Live CD (I choose Linux Mint 12)

2. Boot your system from the Live CD and fire up GParted (Gparted must be run as root)

3. Highlight your hard drive and click Check Drive.  This will check the filesystem on the hard drive and fix any errors.  Depending on the size of the hard drive this may take some time.

4. Boot up your system as normal.

Hope this helps!!
