I installed a new copy of parrot OS and I am facing this issue. I wiped my entire disk and tried again. The same problem has persisted. After entering the 'exit' command. This is the output I get.

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems: — Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline) — Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?) — Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?) — Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! /dev/sda9 does not exist.
Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v.1.20.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.20.2-1ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for list of built-in commands.


This is the first time it has started happening and most other forums I have seen regarding this problem have solutions that aren't working. What can be the problem ? I have even tried to install different versions of the same OS and everytime the same probblem persists.
