I was upgrading and updating my Parrot os 3.2 yesterday. After the restart I get Busybox v1.22.1 initramfs error in my screen:

enter image description here

Now I have read some where that I must use a live usb so I did that and type the following command:

Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition table entries are not in disk order.

But I am stuck here as you can see.

This is my Parrot os that I use to use, but it doesn't boot normal any more after the update.

What to do next?

  • It looks like some version of a Microsoft operating system is also installed on your system. Which version is it and are you currently using it? When you first installed Parrot, did you select the "Standard Installer" option? What mount points and partitions did you configure during the initial install? Did you at any time create a separate partition for "/root"? It looks kind of like the boot loader thinks "/root" is your system root partition. Are you using grub? Sorry for so many questions but any answers could help lead you or someone else to a solution. – airhuff Jan 11 '17 at 22:05
  • Hello first of all thanks for takin time to read my quistion . – alien187 Jan 11 '17 at 23:10
  • The version of the MS os is windows 7. but that is workig fine if i duel boot – alien187 Jan 11 '17 at 23:12
  • When i installed Parrot i used duel boot option on my hard drive. – alien187 Jan 11 '17 at 23:14
  • I was using parrot for months without any problems until I did a system updgrade & update. I was using Parrot os 3.2 and now there is another version 3.4 .Thats why I was trying to update,but when i restart my computer,the problem began. And yes I am using grub loader. I know i can fix this because others had the same problem to but solved it without reinstall Parrot os again. I – alien187 Jan 11 '17 at 23:21

initramfs: fsck /dev/sda1

Let the machine do Everything an then type exit

initramfs: exit
  • Runing fsck on /dev/sdb7 should solve the problem – GAD3R Apr 26 '17 at 21:34
