I'm stuck in the boot and can't open any terminal. When I try to boot my laptop it shows the following error:
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems: -Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline) -Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?) -Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! UUID=718ed077-947d-4018-80ad-59825678e81d does not exist. Dropping to a shell! BusyBox v1.27.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.27.2-2ubuntu3.2) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)_
I tried to follow these steps mentioned in this link (https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=47594). They changed root=UUID=9c05139c-b5bb-4683-a860a7bdf456ccda ro quiet splash to root=/dev/sda5 (i used my UUID and /dev/sda1), but then the error becomes:
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! root=/dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
(I tried to find out my root partition where I installed ubuntu, but i can't run fdisk command in initramfs and also i tried running
(initramfs) cat /proc/cmdline BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.3.0-53-generic root=UUID=718ed077-947d-4018-80ad-59825678e81d ro quiet splash
(initramfs) cat /proc/modules (shows nothing)
This is where I changed the root=UUID=718ed077-947d-4018-80ad-59825678e81d ro quiet splash to root=/dev/sda1 (only the line started with linux)
