Target Filesystem doesn’t have /sbin/init – Ubuntu 10.04
My parent’s computer recently refused to boot, with the error message “Target Filesystem doesn’t have /sbin/init”, following by booting to BusyBox.
I was able to fix this by:
– Booting into Ubuntu from a Live CD
– Going into GParted and figuring out what the mount location of my linux partiton is on (it was /dev/sda6).
– Then running the following command from the terminal:
e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sda6
This command repaired the file system, and when I rebooted Ubuntu was working again.
