While booting a live-usb system, the following errors are returned:

Attempting to mount media /dev/sda2
[...] EXT4-fs (sda2): Unrecognized mount option "uid=1000" or missing value
[...] EXT4-fs (sda2): Unrecognized mount option "uid=1000" or missing value
[...] EXT4-fs (sda2): Unrecognized mount option "uid=1000" or missing value
[...] EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
Skipping /dev/sda2 (marker '/mnt/cdrom///rescure/livecd/squashfs' does not exist)


/dev/loop0 is an invalid root device..
Could not find the root block device in .

What may be the problem and how to solve it? Or where to better look for a solution?

Edit: replaced my typo in the post "uit" with "uid" as in the original error message.

That looks like a typo in the configuration. I am unaware of any option called "uit". However, the very common option of "uid" is likely, and in many modern distros the first User ID would be 1000, thus "uid=1000" is a likely candidate.

Did you create this live image? If it is something you downloaded from a project, maybe it is a bug they have since fixed, or could benefit from having a bug-report registered.

  • Sorry, "uit" was my typo in the post here. I now replaced the typo "uit" above with "uid", as in the original error message. – gan Mar 24 at 18:19
  • I'm not sure whether or not the question belongs here as a Unix&Linux forum. – gan Mar 24 at 18:24
  • Hence, my note above "where to better look for a solution?" I tried several live systems, some of which didn't boot at all. The above errors are from a Bitdefender live .iso, that, according to this forum post recently has been discontinued: forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?/topic/… I will check the UEFI/BIOS settings, as suggested in this thread as soon as I have the opportunity. In any case, thanks for the reply. – gan Mar 24 at 18:31
  • Erm...what operating system is this live usb? – Paul Benson Mar 24 at 18:58
  • Here: pendrivelinux.com/… they say: "Bitdefender Rescue CD is a free bootable anti virus scanner created by Bitdefender and based on the Knoppix Linux Operating System." – gan Mar 29 at 19:07
