Ubuntu 16.04 Installation Error - Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I am getting above error when selecting any of options listed below.

  • Try Ubuntu without Installing
  • Instll Ubuntu

I have read many posts on this site with similar problem. But it is not helping me at all.

When I click 'C' to enter into command line. It opens GRUB command line. SUDO and UPDATE commands do not work there.

Please help me that how can I fix this issue? Ty

  • Please try following things and let me know if it works or not.

    • Please make sure that you are installing Ubuntu 16.04.04 version instead of 16.04.01 from either bootable DVD or USB.

    • If Ubuntu 16.04 is still not working, try to install Ubuntu 14.04. It worked for me in past for same error.
