I recently bought a new computer and I am experiencing problems while trying to install Linux.
Things I have tried:
A variety of distributions:
- Elementary OS;
- Manjaro; and
Every time I try to boot the system either locks and nothing happens or it returns me the same error:
Kernel panic – not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
I have also tried both booting using an USB flash drive and using CD/DVD. And I have tried booting using Legacy and UEFI.
In the last days I have been to a variety of websites and articles, mainly:
I have also searched the StackExchange network but with no success.
The problem with the purposed solutions is:
a) They are for people who already have Linux in their machines and have corrupted their file-systems;
b) For one to execute the presented solutions a Live CD is needed and I can't even boot Linux so this becomes impossible for me.
My motherboard is Gigabyte B85M-D3PH and my processor is an i5-4460, in case this information helps in any way.
Posting here is my last resort.
